Here’s something I prepared earlier but wanted to refresh for joining in to Where’s My Backpack‘s weekly Travel challenge, which this week is Walking:
These boots were made for walking…
Above all, do not lose your desire to walk:
every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it… but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill…
Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right.
(Bruce Chatwin – Songlines)
The first Bruce Chatwin novel I read was Songlines.
I think it is time I read it again.
