Good morning everyone! Hope to see many of you later for today’s discussion of Jenny Odell’s How to Do Nothing. (1pm EDT, sign up here.)
If you can, please bring something that you noticed recently—in the form of a photo, a sound recording, or just something you can tell us about. It can be something astonishing or something mundane; something from nature or your apartment or something you noticed in a passerby. Think about what, if anything, you had to shift in your attention in order to notice it. Your pace, your routine? Something else?
Alternatively, you might bring with you something that you noticed because of its absence. What isn’t there but used to be, or should be, or could be?
Please also come with some ideas for our session scheduled for Tuesday, July 5. Since many of us are working on writing projects this summer, I wonder whether it might be a good moment to workshop one or two pieces that people in the group have been working on. Give that some thought and see if it seems like something we’d like to do together.
See you soon!
