Walk Unexpectantly

I have learned that it is good simply to wander without intention or expectation. Perhaps it leaves me more open to possibility when there is margin in my hours and I can saunter without agenda.

"You must walk sometimes perfectly free -- not prying nor inquisitive -- not bent on seeing things -- Throw away a whole day for a single expansion." -- Henry David Thoreau, Journal, August 21, 1851.
