Setting out

The shape of a walk is a journey on foot towards new ideas. A walking project exploring landscape, borders and song.

As artistic associate of glór I've been invited to spend some time County Clare this summer, what a wonderful opportunity! Clare is one of the most vibrant and beautiful culturally rich places of the whole island - When I think of Clare I picture the unique landscape of the burren and Cliffs of Moher, the beast that is the largest Irish traditional music festival - fleadh ceoil, or surfing in Spanish Point or the the matchmaking festival of Lisdoonvarna... Clare always strikes me as a place with stories. And so, this is my starting point,  setting out on this meandering journey. To traverse new ideas by walking through, about, inside and over Clare.

This blog will be where I host and mull over things that I come across. A sort of live scrapbook. I intend to walk with different people in different parts of the county and at different times of days. Like any good walk at the moment I'm not focusing on the end destination, right now I'm putting one foot in front of the other and having faith that the path with emerges understep.
