Tuesday, 6 June, 2017

The American naturalist and philosopher Henry David Thoreau, author of such classics as Walden, was also a walker. His most famous essay, Walking, which celebrates the virtues of immersing oneself in nature, was ublished in May 1862 following his death from tuberculosis. It’s a helpful guide for hiking and thinking, strengthening bones and muscles, improving your mood and other goodness. Walk the walk!

“So we saunter toward the Holy Land, till one day the sun shall shine more brightly than ever he has done, shall perchance shine into our minds and hearts, and light up our whole lives with a great awakening light, as warm and serene and golden as on a bankside in autumn.”
