Walking Through It
The concept was simple. Go outside and walk every day for the month of February. Stick a picture on social media with a hashtag, let me know. Would anyone join in? “Yep, I’m in” came the response. It seemed to prompt something in people. And sure enough, people did join in. Friends, acquaintances, strangers. And a dedicated bunch they were too. Day-in-day-out for the four weeks, I would see the messages come in. Trudging through some fairly shitty weathers (blizzards, torrential rain, freezing cold, dark nights) I would smile at the selfies and message back – sometimes silly, sometimes more thoughtful, always with a genuine connection.
