WHAT: A virtual, 30-day pilgrimage to Canterbury, “meeting” others to share stories – like Chaucer, but with Zoom.
WHEN: Started planning already. Set off Wed 15 April. Need to finish 10 May.
WHERE: I’m doing it virtually, from my desk, in lock-down, “walking” at an easy pace and picking up each day where I finished the day before. Starts north-west London, via Winchester, to Canterbury. Not a direct route, but it has significance.
WHO: I’ll be inviting friends to join me, experts on walking, landscape, history, storytelling and belief. I hope you’ll join us. As well as the general entertainment and camaraderie, I’m running storytelling workshops for those who want it.
WHY: To hang out every day with people I like, from 10am. Human contact. Entertainment. Learn things. A pilgrimage has structure, and a destination.
HOW: I’m posting a schedule on the calendar. Join what you’d like and leave the rest.
This short video gives a sense of how I came up with the idea:
