It's finally spring. It has been a long winter. For me, that has meant no walking. It is time to get back in the swing. From now on, I will walk every day.

Walking shares with making and working that
crucial element of engagement of the body and the mind with the world,
of knowing the world through the body and the body through the world.

How often have I had this longing for an infinite walk – of going unimpeded,
until the movement of my body as I walk fell into the flight of
streets under my feet – 
until I in my body and the world in its
skin of earth were blended into a single act of knowing.

- Alfred Kazin, The Open Street

 Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. 
Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being …
I have walked myself into my best thoughts, 
and I know of no thought so burdensome that 
one cannot walk away from it. 
- Soren Kierkegaard
