Last day of the conference: Is it my imagination, or have the ladies of Jungian studies pulled out all the finery from the bottom of their suitcases for the last chance to impress each other with their most elaborate outfits? I'm trying to figure this out...is the costuming for the purpose of showing off? Showing off which...their fashion sense? their wealth and status? Or is this a show of respect for the education and/or subject matter? It seems an attempt to bolster a fragile ego. There were plastered smiles, an arena of self doubt enhanced by fashion.
