"“Paths are the habits of a landscape. They are acts of consensual making. It's hard to create a footpath on your own...Paths connect. This is their first duty and their chief reason for being. They relate places in a literal sense, and by extension they relate people.
Paths are consensual, too, because without common care and common practice they disappear: overgrown by vegetation, ploughed up or built over (through they may persist in the memorious substance of land law). Like sea channels that require regular dredging to stay open, paths NEED walking.”   

               

               Robert MacFarlane, The Old Ways: Journeys on Foot

Re-treading paths across the tangled and delicate terrain of memory and (be)longing, drawing close to those who are as much a part of us as our own veins.
