Walking, Meditating, Summarizing

In the spirit of Richard Long’s text and sculptures involving the process of walking, I’ve decided that I am going to document each of the times during my day that I merge into walking meditation. Ideally, I’m going to force myself to summarize each walk in just a few images. Superficially, the process of walking is… incredibly boring, basic, and often overlooked. I’ll be the first to admit that I sometimes dread the end of my workday and the ensuing 30 minute walk, almost always following the same path, to my home. I’ve tried wearing an iPod, talking on the phone, and what not, however, the process of walking demands my attention. And so, I’ll surrender to the ordinary again. Perhaps the greatest entertainment isn’t entertaining… it is simply being present.

Here are today’s entries:

What exactly is it I have been doing? Well, slowly but surely, I have accepted a new role as a manager at AIM. I am continuing to photograph (outdoors, thankfully) and am easing my way out of my winter cocoon. When the snow recedes, Minneapolis comes back to something like life. The spaces that were piled high with unappeasable snowdrifts, have now been reclaimed as sidewalks, public spaces, parks, and all the interstitial spaces of a city.
