"Welcome to WALKING IS TRANSPORTATION," my introductory post declares, "a blog about walking as a practical means of personal mobility."
Nearly two months and 26 posts later, I've decided it's more than time to revise that tidy little description. It wasn't wrong, as far as it went. Trouble is, it didn't go far enough. It was too narrow, too ideological, too confining. It made expressions of awe, delight or even fear seem somehow off-topic.
So I've decided to unlock the door to this cage of my own devising and step outside. From this post forward, this blog is about Walking As Transportation––and about everything else walking is as well.
