    Walking trails has always been important to me. From growing up walking old Quinnipiac trails back in Connecticut, to Hiking in the Boy scouts and at Reed College in Oregon- I think I came to understand who I am on a trail. I am not a fast walker, I always stop to smell the roses or watch the clouds. A few years back I had complications from surgery, and one and half of my two lungs collapsed! Slowly I rehabilitated, going for long walks, first on the flats, then venturing into the hills. Gradually my lungs got stronger, and my strength returned. Fast or slow, walking helps you think, and keeps you healthy.

    Part of my notion of how I teach is the metaphor of walking a trail. I am walking down an intellectual path with my students- I am not leading them like a shepherd- it is more we are following the same way in concert, and along the route we stop and talk about where we are going and where the different paths might lead.

    When Claire came to me with a notion of making a film about walking trails in Grant County, I jumped at the opportunity. Walking a trail is a thoughtful exercise. Our society needs to thoughtfully imagine a better future, and what path we need to get there.
