Into the Woods: Where we Walk

2013 July 19

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” ― Henry David Thoreau

When was the last time you took a walk, footstep by footstep, and let that walk inspire new thinking?

Places and peaceful moments like this, await those who seek it. What is the quality of life, the kind of environment, we want?
