Uit het nieuwe boek van Austin Kleon:
Walking is good for physical, spiritual, and mental health. “No matter what time you get out of bed, go for a walk,” said director Ingmar Bergman to his daughter, Linn Ullmann. “The demons hate it when you get out of bed. Demons hate fresh air.”
What I´ve learned on our morning walks is that, yes, walking is great for releasing our inner demons, but maybe even more important, walking is great for battling our outer demons.
The people who want to control us through fear and misinformation -the corporations, marketers, politicians- want us to be plugged into our phones or watching TV, because then they can sell us their vision of the world. If we do not get outside, if we do not take a walk out in the fresh air, we do not see our everyday world for what it really is, and we have no vision of our own with which to combat disinformation.
