(...)I like the fact that roads and montains are common
(...) The place is as far as the eye can see
(...)The place(...) is found by walking.
A walk expresses space and(...)
the knowledge of it can live
in the imagination of anyone, and that
is another space too.
A walk is just one more layer, a mark, laid
upon the thousands of another layers of human
and geographic history on the surface of the
land. Maps helps to show this.
A walk traces the surface of the land,
it follows an idea, it follows the day
and the night
A road is the site of many journeys.
The place of a walk is there before the
walk and after it.
It's a new walk again.
