A step in the right direction


Mark Dapin’s adventurou­s and admittedly absolutely bloody marvellous Bondi-to-manly walk reminded me of why I love walking and why it is so good for the soul (“Back on track”, February 12-18). Walking slows us down, allows us to experience a gaze upon, and a connection to, the earth beneath our feet and the landscape that informs and educates us about true importance. Trains and boats and planes do not present us with the same opportunit­ies to lose our way joyfully and to rely on our own compass. And “asking someone” about the right path may be the most significan­t thing we ever undertake.
