"Inhabitants, permanent or temporary, who write about spaces have been known as travel writers. The implication in the moniker is that the writers are on scene to accomplish something, to seek out answers or realities, to find out about some unknown part of their history, to figure out their identity, to learn something new that will somehow shed light on their awareness or understanding of the world or of themselves. The essays in this collection attempt to set ambition aside and convey a relationship with place, largely free of incentive and sometimes even motive. Like countless daily connections that we all experience, the events depicted in these essays sometimes resulted in evocative experiences, and sometimes they just ended. The point in my wandering is not to experience something, but only to experience. Meaning comes later, if at all." -- Abstract
