February First Sunday and Folk Horrors

It's First Sunday This Sunday and so we will be gathering for a wander, although as many of you know I struggle walking in snow and ice so for me this is contingent on the weather. I'll update on Sunday morning, if I can't make the walk I will at least share some instructions. If anyone else fancies facilitating instead please shout. Sorry if wobbliness causes issues to anyone, I hope you understand. In the meantime, I will be at the Folk Horror Festival on Saturday and I spoke about the resonances with ps...

19. Tim Ingold, Lines

After reading Sara Ahmed’s book, with its emphasis on the image or figure of the line, I decided to take on Tim Ingold’s Lines, which attempts, according to its author, “a comparative anthropology of the line” (1). For Ingold, lines are phenomena in themselves, not metaphors or theories (xv). “They are really there, in us […]

"Nobody can advise you and help you, nobody. There is only one way. Go into yourself. Examine the reason that bids you to write; check whether it reaches its roots into the deepest regions of your heart, admit to yourself whether you would die if i...

Daily Walk, Mérida, MéxicoAdvice for the morning walk through Itzimná:  Stay on the shady side of the street. Watch out for big holes in the sidewalk, and low-hanging awnings and trees. Say buenos días to the people your pass. Make friends with the security guards. Take your time crossing Avenidas Pérez Ponce, Jose Diaz Bolio, and Circuito Colonias. Notice the street dogs who hang out in the vacant lot beside the business school with its garden of henequ&e [...]

Fifty Walks: 28

Uxmal, MéxicoThe only way to visit Uxmal is on foot. The restored Mayan city is well over 1,000 years old, and the tapir-nosed rain god, Chaac, watches with many eyes from most of the facades. There are macaws, tortoises, feathered serpents, and two-headed jaguars as well. And the living grackles, iguanas, big orange orioles, and a vulture on top of a pyramid. It's an amazing walk, with plenty of stairs. Location: Uxmal, Yucatán, MéxicoLength: 2 kmCompanions: Ma [...]
