Desire lines – on noticing the patterns we make

Once you start to notice desire lines, you see them everywhere.

From the particular way plants move toward the light, to the paths created through the vegetation as wild and not-so-wild beings move through the valley.

The soft fabric of greenery gives ample evidence of repeated movements.

Yet even in our dwellings, we notice where we walk by the relative wear on floor coverings.

Patterns are all around us.

They are called desire lines for good reason.
