A stroll through Eskdalemuir, stopping to write, read and talk along the way about what we feel, see, hear, smell, even taste.

About this event

What I take with me, what I leave behind, are of less importance than what I discover along the way.

from In Praise of Walking by Thomas A. Clark

A stroll through Eskdalemuir, stopping to write, read and talk along the way about what we feel, see, hear, smell, even taste.

We walk without a destination – strolling aimlessly with curiosity and awake with all our senses.

Please bring writing material – and your imagination.

We live as we move, a step at a time, and there is something in gentle walking that reminds me of how I must live if I am to save this life that I have been given.

from Walking in the World by Julia Cameron

This event is part of a series programmed by Autumn Voices in partnership with Eskdalemuir Expressive Arts, and is aimed at older people (60+). 

With thanks to funding from Dumfries & Galloway Third Sector Interface Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund.


Sukhema (Larry Butler) was born in Illinois, grew up in northern California, and has lived in Glasgow since 1981, where he teaches Tai-Chi, movement and leads improvisation workshops. He co-founded the Poetry Healing Project out of which he founded and developed Survivors’ Poetry Scotland and Lapidus. He edits books and pamphlets for PlaySpace Publications, and is a co-founder of the Glasgow-based die-a-log group. His publications include Games Games, a set of illustrated cards with a creative game on each, a chapter in Creative Therapy edited by Sue Jennings, and Beowulf, a verse script for the National Theatre. Poetry collections include Yuga Night with Gerry Loose & Caith Sweeny McGee, Han Shan Everywhere and Butterfly Bones. With Sheila Templeton he edited Living Our Dying (2021).
