Walking As Inquiry In Motion


Through walking we encounter the world.

We feel the weight of the rock in the right hand, and the roundness of the pebbles in the left.

We feel the difference between the hard concrete surface and the change as it gives way to softness as we pass onto the grassy lawn. We feel the corridors of wind produced by the buildings around us and the sand in our eye. We watch the leaves gather momentum in those autumn winds and rush across pavements and gardens inspired by the way the sun heats the earth. Through walking we can go to places that when we sit we can only read about.
