One of the great characteristics of the human species is its unfailing ability to laugh at itself. Even more curiously, the object of humour does not have to be laughing or joking. A sad face without the slightest sign of a grin is as good as anything else to make us smile. As sharp-eyed as ever, designer, Kerry Goodwin, noticed this one Friday evening on a damp November day outside her local supermarket. The bus shelter was full of more elderly humans who looked as if they had either lived together too long, had family problems to worry about or had argued miserably about the kind of beer he should drink during the evening’s television or which bingo hall was offering the best deal that week. Smiles were hard to find, and there were good reasons why. The bus was ten minutes late and the weather typical of the time of year. Worse still, the clocks had just gone back and it was dark. All that was left were idle human thoughts drifting around the cost of Christmas and the lack of control exercised over contemporary grandchildren. This is what Kerry saw at The Bus Stop, and it made her smile.
Most of us have felt like the bus stop people at some time or another. A good piece of Moorcroft will often have characteristics which can make us smile. In the case of the bus stop people, long faces, few words and miserable thoughts enables us humans to smile at ourselves – even laugh aloud. It is one of those things which differentiates us from every other living creature on this beautiful earth of ours. The Bus Stop is special – a secret place in the minds of us all.
