Jo recently returned from NY to advise that Temple, my favourite NY home away from home, has closed. Ah, it was bound to happen that a location in the guide would be altered, but of all the places, why Temple. And now I’m never going to get to confirm that bokbunja label. Have been thinkin’ lately that while home is justly criticised for rapidly changing and undermining the establishment of institutions, it is fun, interesting and can ultimately be hardwearing and enduring; Whereas other so-called ‘centres’ are just kind-a boring. Ah, Temple.
