Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.
~ Anatole France


The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.
~ Don Williams, Jr.


Solvitur ambulando, St. Jerome was fond of saying. To solve a problem, walk around.
~ Gregory McNamee


Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.
~ Soren Kierkegaard


There's more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line.
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine.

~ Indigo Girls, "Closer to Fine"

Just so lovely. I do believe that walking is therapeudic sp? Good for sorting things out, being at peace etc. These are such nice quotes and photos. Thank you.


Barb, I love walking. These photos were taken in the hills around Florence and Fiesole when I made my solo journey there last October. I found it absolutely rejuvenating wandering around. I look at the photos and am transported back to that place and time of reflection.

A stranger checking in ... ;)

As I was looking at your beautiful photos I was imagining you walking on those charming lanes and thinking "this has to be near Florence". I see the warm fall colors that are so conducive to reflection. Love the quotes, especially Solvitur ambulando. I do a lot of that.


Maria, my friend, never a stranger! How cool that you recognized this as being near Florence - was, of course, the same trip as when we shared our three days in Venice. Such a wonderful journey. :)

I would love to walk these roads someday. Beautiful photos!!


girasoli, they are so wonderful and peaceful. I can't wait to wander them again myself someday!
