Scott Stillman

"There is magic in stillness. That place where all thought stops, and only beauty remains."

Walking. Rhythmic walking. When I’m backpacking I’m backpacking. There is nothing else. No phone to answer, no email to check, no bills to pay, no errands to run. Nothing but backpacking. Sure there’s preparation, gear to sort, meals to plan, routes to ponder. But once I start walking, a peace takes over, a simple joy like none other I’ve ever known. There are no distractions. Nothing but Now.
