Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.
Søren Aabye Kierkegaard 1813-1855, from Jan Gehl’s “Cities for People”
Don’t think I know anything about this Danish philosopher, except an off color anecdote about him that may be little more than urban myth. Despite my ignorance about this topic it is nice to know that in my love of walking and exploring, I have something in common with a great philosopher.
