Letter to the Editor - Greetings from the Ormskirk Chapter

"Hi.

I, too, have been bestowed an unexpected (and slightly alarming) honour by the SFSF gents; presidency of the local chapter, in my case Ormskirk, a market/university town near Liverpool.

I found your great site via The Flâneur and am enjoying exploring it.

You might enjoy mine: an account of a long, episodic walk I'm doing between two piers and back to my place of birth: http://walkinghometo50.wordpress.com/

I'd like to install a link to yours if that's OK?

All the best,

Roy"


Editor's Note: As Chair of the New York branch, I heartily welcome Roy to La Société des Flâneurs Sans Frontières (SFSF). As Roy indicates, the hono(u)r is thrust upon us by somewhat mysterious gentlemen who dwell within the higher strata of the organization. Part Dan Brown, part La Rochefoucauld, our benefactors uphold the best of the flâneur tradition through an advocacy of strolling, the connoisseurship of absinthe, and the art of procrastination.

The Flâneur, the official website of La Société des Flâneurs Sans Frontières (Liverpool chapter), inspired me during the early days of Walking Off the Big Apple to explore my inner flâneuse and to make the most of each strolling day. Once again, I welcome Roy to our merry group.
