“If a man wishes to be sure of the road he treads on, he must close his eyes and walk in the dark.”

–St. John of the Cross

Walking in darkness, when your visual perception is reduced, amplifies your powers of hearing and sense of texture, which opens up the mind to new thoughts and innovative ways of looking at the world.

I challenge you to:

Try walking at midnight one night, with a friend or group of like minded people. Try to walk in silence, its better to appreciate the nightlife and all the sounds you make in a quiet landscape. When you arrive at your final destination, spend time lying on your back looking up at the sky. Converse about what you heard, what you saw and what you appreciate. Do the same thing back to where you came.

When you are alone, journal everything you witnessed.

  1. When I was at Uni we used to do a sponsored walk to raise money for a youth project. The walk was overnight from our college on Wimbledon Parkside (in London), al the way through Putney to the Thames. We then followed the Thames all the way to Richmond, before walking across Richmond Park (stunning across the Pen Ponds as the sun rose), across Wimbledon Common, and back to the college. I believe it was only about 16 miles, but took all night, and I loved walking in the early hours when even London could be quiet!
