Reminders (H01)

In reading this weeks walking section I can't help but be reminded of a passage of Thoreau's Walden that I read in AP English coupled with another passage about camping and slowing the mind down. (It should be noted that I haven't read Walden in it's entirety, but merely excerpts.) I remember finding the idea of camping or hiking as slow being odd, and I find it odd yet again here, but I feel as if Gros actually identifies with me. The laps I found was that the idea of being in nature as described didn't seem any slower to me. Perhaps because I try to approach every day like an adventure and actually live in ever second of every day, but I find Gros's explanation how time moves far more satisfying than Thoreau's.
I am also reminded, perhaps oddly, of two songs: "Blue, Red, and Gray" by The Who https://youtu.be/a7SliN-82P0 and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith https://youtu.be/Ss0kFNUP4P4
