Just a short post for those who are in The Walking Book Club. (The Walking Book Club is an audio book club! You can listen to a book, in our little gang, while you walk or do other things!)
I’m halfway through my super-fun creativity-encouraging course Inspiration Information and this month’s book relates to that. It’s all about noticing stuff, changing habits and interesting points of view.
The book for July is: On Looking: Eleven Walks With Expert Eyes by Alexandra Horowitz
Alexandra Horowitz’s brilliant On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes shows us how to see the spectacle of the ordinary – to practice, as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle put it, “the observation of trifles”. On Looking is structured around a series of eleven walks the author takes, mostly in her Manhattan neighborhood, with experts on a diverse range of subjects, including an urban sociologist, the well-known artist Maira Kalman, a geologist, a physician, and a sound designer. She also walks with a child and a dog to see the world as they perceive it.
