Dear ArtStyle: Postcard from Iceland

Dear ArtStyle,

I moved to Chicago from Iceland in 1992 and ever since then have missed having outdoor clothes lines to hang my laundry like I used to back home. Many people have dryers here in Iceland, and the dryers come in handy in the winter. I only recently learned that outdoor lines in the U.S. are associated with people from a lower economic status, and even banned in many communities. But now, the lines may regain their status as being “green” when that idea kicks in (if it ever does). Here, they are neither green nor do they have any sort of status, except that a person who has the facilities to use them is considered lucky.
