And today we went for a walk.
“Mummy I’m tired!”
Waiting underneath the “no dogs allowed in the playground” sign. Gave it a few comforting pats.
look where we came to!
“Many people nowadays live in a series of interiors…disconnected from each other. On foot everything stays connected, for while walking one occupies the spaces between those interiors in the same way one occupies those interiors. One lives in the whole world rather than in interiors built up against it.”
~Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
Today was a day with a lot of walking. Though I groan inwardly from the tedium sometimes, I do wonder if we’ve lost something – spiritually and physically, in all the zipping between places on buses and trains, and no longer connecting the dots on our own anymore.
