Thoughts on walking

Why I always enjoy the activity of putting one foot in front of the other:

A walk is not a parade or a race. It’s a succession of instants, any one of which can illuminate a lifetime.
~ John Baxter in The Most Beautiful Walk in the World

Nobody has yet found a better way to travel slowly than to walk. It requires two legs; nothing more. Want to go faster? Don’t bother walking — roll, slide or fly: don’t walk. But once you are walking, it’s not performance that counts but the intensity of the sky, the splendour of the landscape. Walking is not a sport.
~ Charles Gros in Walking: A Philosophy
