On walking - a quote

"And I walked. I walked. Indeed if all the marks of my walking feet had been left inscribed on the paddocks and roads and playing fields of that suburb, you would have seen lines, arcs, ovals, rectangles, figures of eight, and any other shape you might care to name, all imposed and impinging on one another so thickly that it would have been impossible to trace a single journey."
- Jessica Anderson, Tirra Lirra by the River

I've used the figure of 'arcs' in my own work. I see those lines, the cross hatch and arcing of journeys all the time in the city I walk through.
