Rewalking the same space opens the possibility of closeness with it

Sep 23, 2022

Rewalking may not have the same magic that the first walk, the explorative walk, has. But it elevates the walk into a search, and the search can become a practice. Both the search and the practice transforms the walk into a looking closer, a building of a relationship that was once not there. The consequent walks become surveys of what has changed. Rewalking is how a walker sucks the nectar out of everything, as Henry David Thoreau would say. Every day is a new walk and the same path is always a new one by virtue of the changed in the exterior physical world (Wilderness of geographic space) and the interior mental world (Wilderness of the mind).
