3.3 mile (approx) out and back country walk from St Mary’s Church, Harlington, Bedfordshire

My life and my reality has been impacted by an unimaginable loss and the world is now a very different place to be. It has lost meaning, distorted meaning and meaning has been replaced. Now, ‘I Walk This Earth’ very differently indeed.

Following the loss of my son, Louis, I eventually began to find some comfort and emotional healing on my countryside runs. Running and interacting with the ever changing environment, pausing and listening to the birds and feeling the breeze soaking up detail previously unnoticed all began to stimulate and awaken my soul. Even the occasional tumble, my body helplessly thumping to the ground brought an enlightened sense of my ‘being’ as I connected with this earth. The paths I chose, although familiar, were/are never constant and each step of my replicated meanderings became a step into a new existence.

‘Scatter my immortal soul amongst your eternal memories and I shall see you when the light calls.’

Stanley Greening

The walk

During and after my solo exhibition, ‘being’ at St Mary’s Church, Harlington, you are invited to enjoy a measured 3.3 mile countryside walk from St Mary’s Church. This walk is an out and back walk with a fragmented poetic installation en route.

I invite you to experience each step, taking in random details along the route; the breeze, the sounds, the smells, the wildlife, the varying terrain… Half way, (your turning point), please, do take time to enjoy your view upon the hill. When you return, looking back along the path you took, reflect upon the different perspectives of life’s journeys; the setting out and returning home.

The installation

Along your journey, marked on your maps, are nine suspended wooden signs with words burned into the surface. Each piece presents you with a fragment of a quote by the artist. Each piece is placed approx 600 metres apart in sequential order so the quote unfolds along your walk and completes at your journey’s end.
