There are some great quotes from the walking writers. As well as about what happens in terms of freeing thought while walking. I now have my dream work situation. I walk almost 5K to work and then 5K home again each day. I get to work energized. i get home with work behind me. I get ideas. I work out problems. I am sure some of the people I pass raise their eyebrows at the crazy foreigner talking to himself again but there’s nothing wrong with being the crazy foreigner. The 40 minutes each way each day are better than any health plan and more productive than sessions with a therapist.

Also frequently instead of closing the door for a meeting we’ll go out and do a few laps as we talk. Some of our habits are literally killing us and stifling both our energies and our creativity. Walk on!
