Tasks / Journey To The End Of The Night Los Angeles: Five Years Running

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.

A thrilling pursuit through the heart of Los Angeles. No skates, no bikes, no cars; just your own two feet and public transportation. Bring some water, possibly a camera, and comfortable shoes (or maybe no shoes) - leave everything else at home.

If you participated in the Los Angeles Fifth Anniversary Journey on 5-5-12, in any way, be it as Runner, Chaser, Documentarian or Check Point Volunteer please tell us your story.

Yes, please, take lots of pictures, or draw some, if you have no camera. Tell us your tale of adventure, be as detailed as you can.

Tell us your impressions of the route, the people you meet, and your perceptions of the city.

I'm still not sure quite how it came to pass that I flew down to LA to run a checkpoint for Journey. I think it helped that I volunteered before I had too much time to think about it. My friends Mike and Camilla, who graciously gave me a floor to c...

This will be a text-light write-up. If you want a text-heavy write-up of how a Journey is created, go check out last year's praxis. Between last year and this year I have moved. I have moved into a luxurious house with more garden than I know what t...
