“You’ve got to get out and walk.”

Tue, 23 Mar by Bryon Howard

“You’ve got to get out and walk.”
– Jane Jacobs, writer & urban visionary

Spring is here … and I’m organizing a Jane’s walk near my home in Altadore on Sunday, May 2 at 2pm.

We’ll depart from Kiwani’s Park on the corner of 16 ST SW and 38 Ave SW. (Close to “The Moon” convenience store.)  We’ll walk for about 1.5 hours.  Learn more about this walk and many others in Calgary at  There is also one departing from Calhoun Library.

Who’s Jane Jacobs … and Why Walk?

Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a fresh, community-based approach to city building. She had no formal training as a planner, and yet her 1961 treatise, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, introduced ground-breaking ideas about how cities function, evolve and fail that now seem like common sense to generations of architects, planners, politicians and activists.

I’m leading this walk in hopes of getting to know my neighbours, share my love on our community, and learn more stories from anyone I can recruit on this walk!

Hope to see you on my walk on May 2 at 2pm!

Your Will

Wed, 17 Mar by Bryon Howard

Here’s a thought I shared with my team, and I wanted to share it here.

Your will

You have the means to get it done. There is no question of that.

If it’s not happening for you, there’s really just one thing missing. Somewhere, somehow, you lack the will to do what it makes.

Yes, of course there are all kinds of obstacles. Certainly it is not easy and there are plenty of completely understandable reasons why you have not gotten it done.

Even so, you know it is possible. And indeed it is possible for you.

Excuses won’t do it. Commitment, and the focused, persistent action to back it up, are what will get you there.

It’s your choice and it’s your life. Right now, your greatest possibilities await your will to make them happen.
