    well.. its dark outside, its officially saturday, and i feel like typing so here it goes...

    im a weird dude.
    it dawned on me this evening, a few blocks after getting that 'are you crazy' look from a co worker at 1:30am... i like walking. so much so it seems that after working 16 hours i stood outside a waiting cab and decided to walk home. 24 blocks to the left then turn right for about another 10. youre giving me that look right now aren't you. so i said, 'see ya back at the homestead' and started on my way. passing all the pretty people out at all the hoppin spots, i decided i never want to go on a date wearing a suit. a block or so later after noticing about the third camera watching me, i thought how much i really dont like being watched. somewhere along the line there was a cool ass building... and thats when it hit me. in a moment of oddly placed self reflection i noticed that my thoughts were totally drifting. so i sez to myself, i sez, 'self, what the hell are you doing?'
    'im thinking'
    continuing my way home, thinking about how i caught myself thinking and 'the look' i received, i began pondering.. why did i decide to walk home instead of taking the cab? well, 20 thought drifting blocks later i came to this conclusion- i walked because its kind of like meditating to me. my mind is free. i didnt even notice that i had been walking for about 45 minutes if thats any indicator of how spaced out i was. now that i figured out why i always liked to walk, it was time to think about that for the last few blocks. turns out, if memory searves, i've made a lot of important decisions while walking. interesting. standing on the stoop when i got home, looking up at the sky, feeling the nice night on my arms, i was glad that i walked home, and i said to myself, i said self, im glad we had this little talk. (ka boom- crash)

    its all so clear! viva la shoes!

    first thing I did when I got to Vermont was take a three hour walk... I used to walk for two hours to get to and from work, and I was a doorman at a club, so I mostly stood up... I don't tend to measure walking in distance, only time... I have trekked some pretty impressive distances hampered by drugs, alcohol and injury as well... all 3 together, each seperate, and in all possible pairs... yeah, walking is good for the soul...

    oh, my relatives have walked all over Europe, literally taken trips to go walking...

    you should have said to yourself

    "self, lets walk to seekings an then help him pack an then we can drive across the country hitting all the freights in the mountains. maybe we can even stop off an see abysmal for a bit. yes self, i think thats what we'll do. what we most certainly will not do is go se 'the score' featuring robert deniro and edward norton because its not good."

    or maybe not, what do i know...

    lets get this cd trade up.

    i believe it was raplh waldo emerson who said
    "when someone visits the woods all mean egotism vanishes, we return to reason and faith,.... and nothing can befall you in life which nature cant repair." i guess in this case it wouldnt be the woods it would be the concrete jungle..think about it.

    many of my friends call me crazy or weird when i wanna walk somewhere. they're like "we can give you a ride, we're going there too" and i just walk out the door and meet them there. I like walking, sometimes there are those days where nothin else can be more exciting than the walk you want to go on. That has to be the only thing that i look forward to in life, walks...

    and im with smart. i judge walks on time not distance. i like "hmm itll only take me like 45 minutes to walk there". and my friends are like "are you stupid its like a 8 mile walk...weirdo" fuck stupid friends!


    walking hurts my back. i prefer to cycle, i get the same results though.

    ahh.. I too, love walking. and I'm glad you decided not to take the cab. sometimes you just have to walk, it is and always will be that simple. I think it's a human reflex, something that we can no longer understand because we've been riding in cars for so long and because our entire generation has already run out of patience. but I digress. Thoreau actually wrote the best piece on walking I have ever read. strangely enough it's titled, Walking. I actually prefer hiking, trying to listen to myself amongst the noise of a city is often too difficult. one of my favorite bumper stickers is: my other car is a pair of boots.
