Quotation of the Day for February 25, 2008

“Walking, ideally, is a state in which the mind, the body, and the world are aligned, as though they were three characters finally in conversation together, three notes suddenly making a chord. Walking allow us to be in our bodies and in the world without being made busy by them. It leaves us free to think without being wholly lost in our thoughts.”

– Rebecca Solnit, from her book Wanderlust: A History of Walking.
