How Walking Changes Us-“What interests me is less physiological, more elusive: walking as a way of life.” https://t.co/bp358E9NBW

@acodrescu visited our Philosophy of Happiness class at #mtsu last Fall, in what now seems such a distant and innocent time. https://t.co/y0uM1CQ1e6

Walk on

May 29, 2020

Protests in the streets against police brutality, stoked by the racist psychopath in the White House… an ugly, primitive moment when it’s easy to forget that our species has in fact evolved and advanced from humble origins. I return again and again to Carl Sagan’s inspired and encouraging words.

“We humans have set foot on another world in a place called the Sea of Tranquility, an astonishing achievement for creatures such as we, whose earliest footsteps three and one-half million years old are preserved in the volcanic ash of east Africa. We have walked far.”

That’s why I’ll be watching closely again when they try to launch that rocket in Florida tomorrow. We’ve still got a long way to go, and we need to go together.

It’s the birthday of Walker Percy, 1916. As teenagers he and pal Shelby Foote took a trip to Oxford to meet their hero, William Faulkner — Percy was so overwhelmed that he stayed in the car as Foote and Faulkner talked on the porch. https://t.co/Q2ms1gmILj

@JohnKaag Very lucky! The Wm James Society’s Cambridge/Chocorua centenary in 2010 remains the outstanding professional event of my academic career. Loved visiting WJ’s summer place, hiking his mountain, celebrating his life in a place he loved.
