The Do Nothing Club

.
About ten years ago, here in Kyoto, I tried to launch a Do Nothing Club. The idea was one member would choose a spot to meet and we’d collect, smile (but not talk), just walk a bit, then sit somewhere on the ground… and look, smell, listen… generally relax together. And then go home. No photography, no food, no haiku. Trouble was: the other two prospective founders (one Japanese, the other American) just couldn’t be bothered. So the Do Nothing Club never managed to convene a single meeting… as a result of (how shall I put this?)… well,… INACTION!
