on walking.

‘there are some good things to be said about walking. not many, but some. walking takes longer, for example, than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. thus it stretches time and prolongs life. life is already too short to waste on speed. i have a friend who’s always in a hurry; he never gets anywhere. walking makes the world much bigger and thus more interesting. you have time to observe the details. the utopian technologists foresee a future for us in which distance is annihilated… to be everywhere at once is to be nowhere forever, if you ask me’ -edward abbey

today, leave five minutes early for a meeting and take five minutes longer to get there. soak up all that the world is dying to share with you.

i promise, it is worth a shot. we all get so wrapped up in this thing we call time. how relevant is it really? right now, my time is worth nothing ($15/hour on a good day) i think i can spare an extra five minutes ($1.25). at least that is what i’m learning. i’m learning it is okay to slow down. to breathe. and to enjoy what is going on around me. after all, what’s the rush to always be in the next best place?
