why walk?

the why came back
it always does
Dark Mountain Project asked me “why walk”?
they don’t know i sometimes wonder about it myself
when i am not walking i forget why i have to do it
i know i have to but i get lost sometimes
fortunately i’ve got friends who read the meaning in my walk
who write things like “when I am especially sad and the night is especially beautiful, I always imagine you walking and take comfort in that motion.”
and i know my walking isn’t about me but about walking in this world and connecting with people
but what does walking tell us about the world?

i will think about it
and it will be on the Dark Mountain Blog next week
