Life is a journey. To journey is to live.
Walking means selling. Walking means earning a living.
We take a walk to earn our keep. For many people, walking each day to peddle their wares grants them a day's meal for their children. They take to the streets, and narrow alleyways, enter private corridors and neighborhoods to sell or be shooed away. Each day's walk for them is an extension of life. Walking is to continue living in the labyrinth of the streets of life. Survival means taking a walk that seems never to end because life goes on.
One must walk but each walk is one's own journey.
Where does one go? Wherever one's life is. Whatever life one has.
One thing is definite: to cease walking is to cease life. Let us then walk.
Walk with us.
