“There and back to see how far it is.” That was my father’s stock response to the question, “Where are you going?” It’s true…Sometimes I need to walk, just for the sake of walking. Put the headphones on, and head off in a direction, in the sunlight, through the trees, and the people selling things or just sunning themselves by the side of the road. The destination is unimportant. But of course it’s nice to find a hot chocolate waiting at the end of the road, read for a bit, and then turn around and come back again. It’s Sunday.
