I'm reading a new book called "Wanderlust: A History of Walking" by Rebecca Solnit and am rather enjoying what I've read of it so far. I'm not even sure how to describe it myself so I'll give you a snippet from the back cover:
Solnit's book finds a profound relationship between walking and thinking, walking and culture, and argues for the necessity of preserving the time and space in which to walk in an evermore automobile-dependent and accelerated world.
I was a little worried at first that the book might be a bit dry because it seemed a bit "essay-ish" when I bought it. I'm pleasantly surprised that it's not.
I'm also thinking that it's a good time to be reading this book since the weather is starting (slowly) to get a bit warmer and I'll probably want to do more walking in the coming days/weeks, especially since I live really close to High Park. Generally, I don't much care for walking alone but lately I've been feeling more of an urge to do just that. There's one path in particular that I found last time I was at High Park rollerblading that I really liked and I think that I'd like to walk it.
Tonight, Jboy and I are going out on a date. Even though I've been home this week, it's always nice to put aside some special time just for the two of us. I'm looking forward to it. It will probably be pretty relaxed, dinner and a movie. The perfect way to just chill with my honey.
