About walking

Photo 1Walk with me / June 2013

“There are some good things to be said about walking. Not many, but some. Walking takes longer, for example, than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed. I have a friend who's always in a hurry; he never gets anywhere. Walking makes the world much bigger and thus more interesting. You have time to observe the details. The utopian technologists foresee a future for us in which distance is annihilated. … To be everywhere at once is to be nowhere forever, if you ask me.”

~ Edward Abbey

Our shadows meet

Shadows_apollinaireShadows on the path / June 2013


Made somber by the sun
Our shadows meet
Until the sun
Is squandered by night

Gods of living water
Let down their hair
And now you must follow
A craving for shadows

~ an excerpt from "Clotilde" by Guillaume Apollinaire (his brief career influenced the development of Futurism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism and the legend of his personality—bohemian artist, raconteur, gourmand, soldier—became the model for avant-garde deportment)
