An excellent essay, perfectly summarized by the title.
I am acutely aware that I am witnessing a way of life that was once common but is now finished. With Mary's death, the inn will close and another tradition will pass away, too.
I sometimes wonder why this matters so much to me. Am I just being sentimental? Things change, all the time. People move on, tastes alter. Pubs open, pubs close. Big deal.

Communities are lost, too. A village without a focal point becomes a collection of dwellings - a location, but no longer a place.
