El Poder de La Belleza

How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live!

—Henry David Thoreau, as quoted in The New Yorker article “Why Walking Helps Us Think" by Ferris Jabr, Sept. 3, 2014.

This article could also be titled “Why Walking Helps Us Write”. I’ve started doing most of my writing on my iPhone, while walking through the city to and from work each day, so it really resonated with me!
