The Loiterers Resistance Movement

First First Sunday of 2021

Dear friends and fellow wanderers

I hope you are continuing to find glimmers of magic and moments of joy in these dark times and that the festive period has been what you needed, if not what you wanted. I won’t add to the acres of analysis about this year but I will say thank you for being part of The LRM and helping sustain this psychogeographicalish journey into our 15th year.

We will carry on and this weekend the first First Sunday of 2021 provides another opportunity to walk together, alone and connect through more than physical means. As ever all are welcome, we ask only that you take care of yourself and all those you encounter. Here in Manchester that means wandering solo or inbubbles, keeping safe distances, wearing a mask and – as ever – not being an arse. Staying away remains an act of care but that does not mean we can not walk creatively and make new connections. I don’t know yet when we will actually meet and walk in the same place again yet but when we do I will try and retain the best bits of the digital adaption. For me this means being able to share with loiterers from anywhere and everywhere, whether inside or outside and remaining open to being as accessible as possible. New ideas always gratefully received.

My wander will begin at 2pm GMT on Sunday 3rd January. The prompt is simple but contains multitudes and you can of course use it at a time and in a way that suits you.

Look for signs of hope and unity and creativity and possibility. What do you want for 2021 and beyond?  If you are unsure which direction to head pause and be silent, then walk towards the faintest sound you here.

There are several ways to join in:

  1. There will be a live chat group on whatsapp set up for this walk only and it will be active between 2pm-4pm this Sunday. It’s a place to share words, thoughts, images and discoveries. To join please email me ( or send a text or whatsapp message to 079 749 29589 before 12 noon on Sunday 3rd
  2. You can also share via twitter @thelrm #Loiter2021 or facebook “the loiterers resistance movement” and these will be picked up later
  3. The post walk zoom chat at 3.30pm on the 3rd – it’s open to anyone interested in loitering – share discoveries made on this walk or any other, suggestions for directions for future LRM activities or just have a blether about something interesting. Here’s the link:
