Musing on writing: To collect moments

Text: Solveig Hansen, 2018

TO COLLECT MOMENTS
Streets are made to be walked, observed, and strutted along as if a catwalk. Every once in a while we should adopt a modern flâneur’s attitude and stroll the streets. Walk down this street, look around that corner, say hello to a stranger. Sit ourselves down in a coffee bar and watch people passing by. Then go home and write about it.

What strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is stroll about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters.
— Charles Baudelaire
