So You Walk

Forest Path

The Path © 2012 Bo Mackison

How can you explain that you need to know that the trees are still there, and the hills and the sky? 

Anyone knows they are. 

How can you say it is time your pulse responded to another rhythm,

the rhythm of the day and the season instead of the hour and the minute? 

No, you cannot explain. 

So you walk. 

~ Author unknown, from New York Times editorial, “The Walk,” 25 October 1965

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. I agree.

  2. Gandalf says:

    Nice scene. I’d walk that path a dozen times. Perhaps I have.

  3. That’s one of my favorite quotes, Bo. Love the image you put with it. 🙂
