      I kinda just read this whole thing because I wanted to see if there would be any mention of Natalie Portman's slow-mo walk at the end of Closer. Can't believe it wasn't mentioned!

      Anywho, walking rules. I'm trying to do three good walks per day, every day. I fail almost always, but it's a good benchmark.

        Very ambitious of you. I’m happy when I get one walk a day.

      I love the pictures, lately walking has become one of my greatest pleasures. Now I like it even more.

      Walking always reminds me of Paris. 5 to 10 miles a day for 7days. The most fun I’ve ever had walking in my life!

      I loved this little piece, so simple but powerful in the images it pulled from me - walking before dawn in the winter bundled in my ski wear, smelling the cold, seeing all the Christmas lights; walking through the cobblestone streets of Paris; walking the hills in Cranmoor in the fall with trees burning red, orange, yellow; walking the boardwalk in Seaside smelling the salt air, the green grey ocean crashing on the beach. Walking allows my mind to breathe, heart to fill with gratitude. I prefer to be alone on my walks, as talking pulls me from my reverie, my devotion to all that is beautiful and magnificent in the natural world.
