walk on

November 19, 2010

Oh Creative One, there are some books that I pick up at uncanny moments in my life. For example, almost every time I pick up Rebecca Solnit’s “Wanderlust,” I find myself in the midst of a move across the town, across the country, or to a new country. Determined to break the cycle and knowing I need to be here in Scotland until the new one is born, I picked it up again last night and re-read the first chapter again. It begins with a walk in terrain that I have walked myself and I found it comforting but in such a way as to not make me cry from homesickness. Here is a quote, “Walking itself is the intentional act closest to the unwilled rhythms of the body, to breathing and the beating of the heart. It strikes a delicate balance between working and idling, being and doing. It is a bodily labor that produces nothing but thoughts, experiences, arrivals.”

Delicate Creative One, this weekend take a walk. Bring a friend or not. Have a destination or not. But do receive the thoughts, experiences and arrivals that to which only your creativity can find. Enjoy…
