A Beautiful Question
I have met with but one or two persons in the course of my life who understand the art of Walking.
-Henry David Thoreau
I ran across this article, The Fine Art of Walking, written by Dionne Lapointe-Bakota in Taproot, the magazine for makers, doers and dreamers (Issue 19 if you want to enjoy). Sounds lovely just reading the titles. The authors words set in and came back to me days after I had read them. There is something interesting to think about our lives as these series of fast moving events, leaving one to get to the other, hardly a moment for self-thought in between. How often do we take time to breathe, to think about what we know, or to dream about what we want to grow into and how we want to become? How often do we take the time to walk through our lives looking, listening, finding something anew?
