Wanderlust: Rebecca Solnit on How Walking Vitalizes the Meanderings of the Mind

One of my favourite writers is Rebecca Solnit:  she speaks to me in a voice that reflects who I am.

In Wanderlust, Rebecca explores walking in all its beauty and simplicity.  Walking is one of those things, like eating, that can give wonderfully sensuous  pleasure; when we pay attention or it is, just, a simple utilitarian act.  I inter-loaned this book and enjoyed it immensely.  I recommend it to you.

“I suspect that the mind, like the feet, works at about three miles an hour. If this is so, then modern life is moving faster than the speed of thought, or thoughtfulness.”
