Walking the World

A beautiful image from Paul Salopek's "Exploring the World on Foot" in the New York Times (2015-12-13):

... My boots scared up grasshoppers from the brittle grasses. Whirlwinds of swallows swooped to feed. And I felt it: The burning horizons were creaking up to meet me. I was walking, effortlessly, atop a gigantic ball. ...

... I feel it now all the time: a kind of hyper-attentive trance. When it overcomes me, I feel capable of walking to the edge of the world where the water falls off. ...
