Daily walk

This year has really brought home the importance of nature - and many people’s limited access to it. For many of us, whether in nature or far from it, a daily walk has become a ritual and coping mechanism. 

On one of your daily walks take notes. You could think about what patterns your feet would draw around your neighbourhood. You could list the objects you see, whether natural, like stones or plants, or human-made, such as street art or litter.

How might note-taking affect the way you walk and the way you see things compared to your usual ritual? You could experiment with writing something using your notes and the memories of that route accumulated over the year.

We hope that you might find some inspiration in this writing prompt but as always if you would like to write something else - a diary entry, poem, your reflections on something else about your life at the moment - we'd be delighted to read whatever you would like to send.
