Walking is falling forward…

“Walking is falling forward.

Each step we take is an arrested plunge, a collapse averted, a disaster braked. In this way, to walk becomes an act of faith. We perform it daily: a two-beat miracle—an iambic teetering, a holding on and letting go.” Paul Salopek

Rained out at an art festival I sat down and by chance opened this NatGeo.  This was the opening to a story about walking the path of civilization. I negotiated taking the publication home with the promise I would return it upon completion. Last night I settled in to read it and well, it wasn’t much of an article and the book will be completed in 2016. Oh well, what a start!
