Jon Cotner says, "Last weekend's New York Times discusses Island Night -- my 12-hour nocturnal walk through Fire Island. These walks accommodate eight participants plus myself. They combine philosophic dialogue with poetic meditation, and go from 6 pm to 6 am. Ancient Greeks are heavily represented (Sappho, Pythagoras, Diogenes, Hippocrates). Asian poets too (Akahito, Basho, Issa). All my recent projects aim to revive the ancient, endangered practices of walking and talking."
