Read My One Word for 2019 is Flânerie by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (Read Write Respond)
This is both a reflection on my one word for 2018 – Intent – and my new word for 2019 – Flânerie.

How can you not love this word and the ideas behind it? Reminds me I ought to do more walking this year since I live in such a walk-able city.

Are there any other texts that you would add to my list to guide my personal inquiry this year?  

You might take a quick search into some of the writings of Nassim Nicholas Taleb relating to the idea. He mentions some of the benefits of being a flâneur interspersed in several of his books as side topics, but I’m sure he’s got to have an essay or two on the overall topic.

He’s one of the people I’ve noticed using the word (in his case as a title which he might put as a profession on his business card) in the past 20 years who seems to have brought it to the social forefront to the point that many of your other references have been influenced by it.

I think there’s a lot to be learned about the overarching idea, so I’m interested to see what you come up with on an extended survey of the word as you progress.

got immersed into a maze of down subway lines which left me plenty of time to reflect.  

This sounds a lot like the experience I had with you at the IndieWebSummit where we got so engaged in talking and thinking while we walked back to the hotel one night that we easily got lost and walked twice as far as we needed to.
