“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ―Friedrich Nietzsche

After the stork dropped us off, it took a walk. We followed in its footsteps.

“But the beauty is in the walking — we are betrayed by destinations.

―Gwyn Thomas

An early bird taught us to hit the ground running, lest time we waste. Yet biding birds gently alight, when stalkers stop gunning, and take great strides without haste.

“To become a philosopher, start by walking very slowly.”

―Nassim Nicholas Taleb

We are loathe to get our alligators wet, to splash wavelets like egrets, and fly-fish without waders. But we might learn their promenade.

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

From descendants of dinosaurs, whence we learned to fly, this we surmise: follow in their footsteps on the walk of flâneurs. Those birds are wise.

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”

―John Muir

  1. Nietzsche must not have had access to a shower. Or, a waterfall.

    • Thank you for opening the floodgates of my curiosity with your dry humor.

      Appreciate your visit, Mr. T, Hope you enjoyed it half as much as I do mine to Trefology..

      May the rains damp the flames and cool the Coast!

      “Water is sufficient…the spirit moves over water.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
