Good morning. Setting up for breakfast. Rain here today. I was in a dour mood. Then I saw this message from Craig Mod, a writer and photography who is walking thousands of kilometres across Japan.
Day 21. A spectacular day, one of shops and people and food and trees and gentle breezes and merciful clouds. Walking as floating. Bobbing consciousness. A day where I met, finally, another Serious Walker and we sniffed each other like wild dogs and he had done Shikoku 3x in the last 4 years and was on day 36 of a current walk. Tomorrow: rest day. Only 4 days until Kyoto & this pub experiment is done.
He attached this photo of a man he met. I instantly had a smile. My mood changed.
