Monthly Walks 2016

The Faraway Nearby

The Mighty Severn nr Westbury "Many people nowadays live in a series of interiors — home, car, gym, office, shops — 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."

"The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking, and the passage through a landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. This creates an odd consonance between internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it."       Rebecca Solnit, 1961 -
