This blog is all about walking; about my walks and my thoughts when walking. I try to stay away from political statements (and religious ones) because I like to think that going for a walk can rise above that noise. But sometimes life feels wrong. Sometimes it feels like there is too much anger and not enough compassion. I feel like that more and more these days and it’s disheartening.
So, in a world full of noise, yesterday a little voice said to me… go walk. And I absolutely knew where.
The Masar Ibrahim al-Khalil
The Masar Ibrahim is more than just a hiking trail. It is a means of meeting and making connections with Palestinians and hikers from all over the world. You can explore Bedouin villages and experience a fundamental Palestinian tradition: hospitality. The Masar Ibrahim not only invites hikers to experience nature but also to change their perspectives by sharing common values and tolerance for acquaintances along the way.
I told Gerry and expected him to say I was crazy but instead he said he understood and that maybe he would walk with me. We don’t know if it’s possible… but if we can then we will go in March 2019.
It feels right.
