Wonder as You Wander

When I was a kid, a music teacher came to our school every other week. She had long hair, wore crocheted maxi skirts and played the autoharp. I was in love. She led us in songs like “The Happy Wanderer.” Like all kids, we showed the most vigor during the chorus: “Val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!” Pure joy. That sense of unbridled pleasure at being outdoors is what writer David Ryan will get at in his talk, “The Gentle Art of Wandering,” tomorrow evening at the Elena Gallegos Picnic Area (7100 Tramway NE).

The idea is to ditch any agenda, expect to find something interesting wherever you walk and to pay attention so that you find it. You don’t even have to leave the city—urban wandering offers plenty of delights. It’s really about encouraging your senses to come to life and being mindful as you wander, which isn’t a bad way to approach pretty much all of life (don’t forget to carry water wherever you wander). Ryan will share tips and observations, which also appear on his blog: gentleartofwandering.com (his book of the same title is available there). As part of the City’s Saturday Sunset Series, the talk happens tomorrow at 7pm, and is free and open to all. Elena Gallegos Picnic Area • Sat Jun 14 • 7-9pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
