Still Learning To See

Road walking

I continue to be just stunned by the powerful shift that comes from walking Nicole Grubman’s “loop roads”—see her book I Left my Sole in Vermont—both because of the “speed,” or lack thereof, and the looping. She speaks of this in the book quite elegantly.

Yesterday morning, Rob and Michael and I walked the roads of Cabot, simply gorgeous and all the more so by it being a crisp (18F) morning. On the three-mile walk we encountered two cars, a tractor and an old man “jogging” with his dog. Not bad.

Last night I flew to NYC where I am encountering thousands of cars and tens of thousands of people. Also not bad but so different it makes my head spin.

    Oh, John! Your pictures and sentiment continue to leave me breathless at times. The opening picture of the “Blue Mountains” (not Green…at least here…this time of year!) is exquisite. I feel like I have been on the walk with you, Rob and Michael. Thanks!
