Walk Brighton Project Week 2

Dream House

Walk Brighton Project

Welcome to Week 2 of my Walk Brighton Project. It is bringing a lot of excitement into my life of working from home and social distancing. I am always looking forward to walking new segments of my town and seeking out photos to take.

Architecture Class

I took A Crash Course in American Architectural History II – 20th Century from the Rochester Brainery. It was especially enjoyable to take this online class since I now spend a lot of time looking at examples of architecture in my town.

People

So far, I don’t see a lot of people during my walks around town but the few interactions I have (at a safe distance of course) are memorable. Maybe there are few people because it has been cold and I am a morning person and operate on a different schedule than most people. I have not yet told anyone I see around town what I am doing. I barely speak with the people I pass. I am currently taking a Coursera class, “The Science of Well-Being” by Yale Professor Laurie Santos. The class mentioned how interactions with people, even small conversations with strangers helps to make us happier. My in-person interactions are limited now so the simple “Hello” from a walking neighbor is a small thing that brightens my day.

Some memorable moments:

  • 1 year old blew kisses at me.
  • Woman speaking on the phone said to her friend, “It seems so funny to move out of the way when walking towards people. A woman just moved out of the way!” I was the woman that moved.
  • A woman said, “Hang in there.”
  • Man cutting a board with a circular said, “Hello.” It was so simple but it was memorable because of the tone and richness of his voice. He seemed very kind.
  • A woman looked at me strange when she saw me taking a photo of her house but we did not talk to other than saying, “Hello.”
