i like to walk. not just as a mode of transportation. but as an avenue for discovery.
cities are my favorite places to walk. there is the buzz of the street, the cadence of waiting for the light to change, the noticable shifts as one neighborhood gives way to another, then another, then another.
when I worked in San Francisco, I'd walk most days from our office in the South of Market area to Grace Cathedral, which stands atop the highest hill in San Francisco.
there was some unique joy in walking up to this building - seeing its spire, watching it come into total recognition, entering its enormous doorway.
walking thru life can be tough. some neighborhoods are tougher than others, some hill harder to climb. i notice, even in the toughest of times, how much that walking leads me to thing discovered or re-discovered in my life.
