This is one of those posts that's been on my list to write for sometime. Back in late Spring when Shawn Micallef's book, Stroll , came out, I got together with the author for a walk around Wychwood Park, one of Toronto's oldest gated communities, located between Davenport and St. Clair on the escarpment formed by Lake Iroquois.

I had thought that a tour of Wychwood would be the perfect way to find out more about both Shawn's book and the concept of psychogeography, the method upon which his walking tours is loosely based. The latter is, as Shawn writes in Stroll , "a term invented by Guy Debord and the Situationists in 1950s Paris. They were concerned with the effects of geography on human emotions and behaviour, so they did absurd things like walk around Paris using a map of London."

Although the Situationists had hoped that such exercises might "strike a blow against capitalism and society," the observations in Stroll aren't so political and lofty. What it does have in spades, however, are subtle notes about often-unseen aspects of Toronto, the types of things that, while available to be seen, are often missed on account of the lack of attention we have to offer during the daily grind.
