Walking: between the lines

We have a fascination with writers who draw from place.  It is probably something to do with the fact that as walkers we are out carving our way through space and experiencing places, one step at a time.  We are not great writers so appreciate those who can write a good story and engage with […]

To begin with I didn’t know how to walk. I was able to learn to balance. Able to navigate the world on two feet. To engage in a series of tiny falls. The consequences of misjudged falls change. They grow with us.   London is designed for a particular type of body. A body able to […]

Making it better for walking

It is ever so easy to forget what was there before…..what was that building that is now rubble behind a hoarding and where did that path lead to anyway?  Don’t know about you, but we are feeling that our grasp on place is slipping from our memory.  If you don’t cover the territory very often, […]
