“Walking is not about getting from A to B, it is rather a creative act. It is a moment where we are left alone with ourselves, as well a rise to transform our society. It is the sole act of Homo Viator, who in every new step, realizes himself as a true part of the earth, who tries to rise despite the twisted body.
