“A Field Guide to Getting Lost is an investigation into loss, losing and being lost. Taking in subjects as eclectic as memory and mapmaking, Hitchcock movies and Renaissance painting, Rebecca Solnit explores the challenges of living with uncertainty. Beautifully written, this book combines memoir, history and philosophy, shedding glittering new light on the way we live now.”
The objective of this reading session is to delve into Solnit’s world of walking, wandering and getting lost and discuss how all of this makes up a perfect metaphor of survival in these times.
walking today, walking yesterday
walking and thinking, walking as inspiration
the fear of getting lost and the adrenalin of it all
uncertainty as a creative path
We will try and reach some conclusions regarding how intimate as human beings we are bonded to the most ancestal art, that of walking. Why do we walk for pleasure? walking entire cities, country sides, mountains. What happens to us when we walk? Why are there so many books about the art of walking and trekking? What does it mean to get lost?. Do we get lost in order to find ourselves?
