The Owl has been learning Walking or Sauntering, if you will. Thoreau was an ardent advocate of walking in the wilderness. He wrote "He who sits still in a house all the time may be the greatest vagrant of all; but the saunterer, in the good sense, is no more vagrant than the meandering river, which is all the while sedulously seeking the shortest course to the sea."
The Owl recently met some people whose whole life revolves around walking with their animals.
Fine dust kicked up by the herd obscured the sky but the sun made his presence felt none the less. The animals munched contentedly while this little boy minded them. It was in that moment that the Owl understood what Thoreau - it is here in the wilderness, surrounded by the raw material of life, that one is the most alive.
For regular readers of the blog, this is not the first time this Owl has talked about walking with pastoral nomads. This time he went all the way to the grasslands of Banni to seek out these nomads. And rest assured there will be many more to come. We're working on something very big and very exciting. Stay tuned for more.
Until Next Time
