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.
