Looks like it’s the season for awards, and we’re knee-deep in them over here at Thinkwalks.
This week, the San Francisco Bay Guardian gave Thinkwalks its freshly minted “Best of the Bay: Best Cerebral Stroll” Editor’s Pick Award.
Joel Pomerantz has a lot of nerve asking people to think and walk at the same time. He also has a lot of nerd. In fact, he bills his ThinkWalks — designed especially for locals — as “nerdy tours for San Franciscans.”
And last week it was the Awesome Foundation for the Arts and Sciences insisting on shoving a $1000 grant our way, to support sidewalk natural history talks. Whew, it’s getting to be a pattern.
Meanwhile, speaking of patterns, my musicky storybook, called Twice Just to be Sure is now done and available. To be clear, it’s not a Thinkwalks project—different nerdy audience of parents, kids and imagineers. So far, it’s been well received by those who matter most: parents, kids, musicians and free-range turkeys.
