Snatched phrases (on hope)

‘It’s maybe why her mother took to walking, Tess thinks  as she clambers through thickets of ash, brown kurrajong, weeping fig.
When you’re walking the view shifts and changes.
Walking’s a form of hope.’

from ‘The World Without Us
by Mireille Juchau

When you're walking ...
When you’re walking …
... the view shifts and changes.
… the view shifts and changes.
Walking's a form of hope.
Walking’s a form of hope.

  1. True, walking is a form of hope and healing. I always feel better after a quiet ramble.
    I love seeing the beautiful plants on your continent, so different than ours. However, I’ve noticed that CA has introduced quite a few species from Down Under because the climates are similar.

      1. Beyond hope, I think. Although I read a very interesting book recently, ‘The New Wild’ by British enviromental journalist Fred Pearce, who expresses a whole new view on the subject. I recommend it!
