If you think about it, roads are usually the only things that last the ravages of time.
Beautiful buildings decay or are replaced.
Landscaping reverts to its original state if left untended.
Civilisations come and go.
But roads last.
Here’s the thing about roads, they only ever exist to connect. No one ever builds a road or path in the middle of nowhere for no purpose.
And we make our roads by walking.*
Perhaps the more important question is to whom are we connecting?
*Antonio Machado, Spanish poet: ‘…there is no path. The path is made by walking’
