I am old and I am bored. I was never very wise and my mind has never walked much further than my feet. Oh my forest, my forest … I go back and back to wander there.
There blue fingers of the moon still play on my old lute. There wind scatters clouds and comes down to flutter my robe.
You ask me what is the best happiness of all? In the forest it is sweet to hear a girl singing on the path, after she has stoped to ask her way, and thanked you with a smile. ~Wang-Wei*

Great set of walking images, Brenda. The second image of the movement is remarkable.
Thank you, Amy.
You always have the absolute best quotes Brenda – this week especially. Loved the images as well. My favorite this week the hustle and bustle imagery in your “walking in motion” pan.
Thank you, Tina.
Nice set of walkers you have here. I liked the ghostly photo, but the one where the guy seems to be walking into a solid wall of pillars is the one on which my eyes snagged
Thank you…”walking into a solid wall…” seems to fit as the building is on a university campus. 🙂
Great set of images for this week’s theme! I like the one with the two guys walking in opposite directions, and the one with the line of columns 🙂
Thank you, Sarah.
I must chime in with the others – this is a great set. Favourite is the two men walking in different direkctions.
Thank you for the positive words
Excellent photos, superb poem. Well done.
Thank you John
