Keens & Walkabout Fridays

Walkabout Friday - 30s Sedan
Walkabout Friday – 30s Sedan

Scott Smith, CMO of Motivation to Move, was the first person to let me and his listeners in on certain rejuvenating aspects of the secret Life of entrepreneurs, the matter of setting aside the occasional Friday for walkabout, times to reconnect with friends and colleagues, times to check-in, play, have a beer; the walkabout Friday would be a day to cruise not too far out of town on your Harley Davidson motorcycle and to arrive and explore … sort of the same way people hit Farmer’s Markets on Saturday mornings.

Not a Harley, but a thirties sedan among other glory-days vehicle – the 64 Mercury Monterey and a 55 Chevrolet Truck (cream coloured behind the sedan). Walkabout Friday is in full swing in Nanaimo, British Columbia. My wife is indoors at the Valhalla Pure buying some Keen shoes.

Listening to – Great Lake Swimmers’ ‘The Great Exhale’ and ‘Cornflower Blue.’

    Like the airbrush pictures I used to admire in my youth, before computers and digital. Do people still do those I wonder?


    1. Hey there, Jim:

      The airbrush work I recall would be the murals done up on the sides of people’s van’s in the seventies and eighties. 😉

        I like the Sci-Fi stuff that was about, space, spaceships and aliens. 🙂 The covers of comics and pulp fiction.
