if any one can spare a few minutes of their time, i want you to share your definition of authenticity with me for a piece of creative non-fiction i am in the process of writing. don’t worry about if it is wordy, gaudy, prophetic, lamentable, clever, funny, whatever, anything will help. the more honest it is the better as i want to gauge public perception of it. think about objects, tradition, the modern world, the ancient world, their similarities & differences, think experience with food, things, people, clothes, culture, books, politics, literature, society, travel, education, absolutely anything that comes to mind about authenticity.
i have begun a portfolio for the discussion here.
