While on vacation . . . I was visiting an little bookstore in Eureka Springs, located in old downtown on Spring Street, a block or so up from the Flat Iron Building. In the window of the store, I saw a book with the title, "Planet Walker" by Dr. John Francis.
Back in the 1970's, John was a hippie in San Francisco. In part because of his involvement in rescuing wildlife affected by a major oil spill, John chose to stop using automobiles, and has since walked / hiked several times across the United States. He even stopped talking for 17 years as part of his journey. In the course of his walking, he earned a bachelors, masters and PhD degrees.
Being a long time Colin Fletcher fan (he is my favorite author), and a lover of books about hiking adventures, I had to order this book when I got back home.
In the course of talking about the book, my wife asked me a question . . .
What cause are you so passionate about, that you would hike or bike across Texas in order to raise awareness or support?
Great question . . . and now over 2 weeks later . . . I am still no closer to an answer than I was before. But I am spending some quality time thinking about it still.
I am open to suggestions!
Time to venture deeper into who I am, and who I am called to be.
Ever forward . . . ><>
