Walking is medicine for the mind. It helps us slow down and think things through. It also helps us perk up and generate new ideas. There are few activities as readily available and revitalising as a brisk walk, or as soothing and stimulating as a long walk. Wonderful things can happen when we set out on two feet.
This box contains twelve exquisitely illustrated cards offering guidance from creative thinkers and veteran walkers including Henry David Thoreau, John Burroughs, Bruce Chatwin, Cheryl Strayed, Rebecca Solnit and William Ury.
A perfect gift for anyone seeking fresh air and ideas.
WALK TO WELCOME THE DAY
"An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day." Henry David Thoreau
WALK TO GET SOME PERSPECTIVE
"I'd walk and think about my entire life. I'd find my strength again, far from everything that had made my life ridiculous." Cheryl Strayed
WALK TO BECOME MORE PRESENT
"Suddenly I came out of my thoughts to notice everything around me again-the catkins on the willows, the lapping of the water, the leafy patterns of the shadows across the path." Rebecca Solnit
