I watched ‘Wild’ with Reese Witherspoon the other evening, and it inspired this poem. One young woman’s journey walking through California to Canada following the Pacific Crest Trail- she is trying to find something- maybe how to put down grief and ‘enjoy life’- maybe it was that simple.
A friend’s son, Jake, is now heading for a six week walk of his own in Spain. I wish him and all the other walkers out there luck. And may you lay down the unhelpful and find the beauty of living.
Technical note: apologies for the splitting of the poem with borders- WordPress seems to dissolve the formatting, so I had to save as two separate images.
