Handled With Care

This - bitter earth
Well, What a fruit it bears
What good is love
Mmmmmmmm
That no one shares

This Bitter Earth, Dinah Washington

Writing an essay on repair and share cannot be based on scholarly papers. These practices cannot be chronologically defined or separated from intrinsic activities such as breathing and eating. Sharing was the basis of creating the first habitats of humanity along with repairing or fixing what prevented survival from happening, such as behaviours, practices and a progressing model of interaction with nature. Nonetheless, the contemporary understanding of repair and share is limited to seeing these practices as ghosts of a devalued past. A past of labour. A past of pain.
