How to be weird : an off-kilter guide to living a one-of-a-kind life

Image of item
"A guidebook for cultivating the surprising joys that come from living an off-kilter life We crave the weird-the quirky, the eccentric, the peculiar, the freaky, the far-out-because it takes us out of our normal habits of thought and perception, nullifies our old conceptual maps with which we navigate our lives, and propels us into uncharted regions. Or to put it more simply: weirdness is essential to an interesting life. In How to Be Weird, Eric G. Wilson offers 99 fun and philosophically rich exercises for embracing all the weird in the world around us--taking aimless walks, creating a reverie nook, exploring the underside of bridges, making tombstone rubbings, finding your own Narnia, and more. With brief digestible entries on how to make sense of the random, guidelines on how to defamiliarize familiar objects through meditation, and exercises for locating weird states and phenomena for ourselves, How to Be Weird is an invitation to lean into the weird and to live a fuller life"--
