Wilderings: Overcome by Wilderness

April 5th - 11th, 2020

April 5th: Find a bit of nature that can hold part or all of your weight. Rest your weight on it like you just came home from a trip and you’re setting down your bags. When your mind wanders, collect your bags and set them down again.

Describe your weight and the weight of the thing on which you rested.

April 6th: Return to whatever you rested your weight on yesterday. Sit so you can see all of it at once. Look at all of it. When you mind wanders ask - what else? - and keep looking.

Write what you noticed in sentences starting with the phrase “and also you” alternating with “and also I”.

April 7th: Return again. Choose one detail on which to focus. Look at that one detail. When you mind wanders ask - what more? - and return to the detail.

Describe that detail. Start every sentence after the first with the word - more.
