J'aime beaucoup !!! Ta photo me fait penser à ce passage du livre de Lanzmann

Marcher,
C'est aller au bout de soi-même tout en allant au bout du monde.
C'est redécouvrir l'homme qui prenait ses jambes à son cou lorsque le ciel lui tombait sur la tête.
C'est geler en même temps que les pierres du chemin.
Griller au feu du soleil.
Partir à l'aube en pleine forme pour revenir sur les genoux en pleine nuit.
 
Marcher,
C'est rencontrer des créatures qu'on ne verrait nulle part ailleurs.
Marcher, c'est aussi aller nulle part sans rencontrer personne.
C'est se mettre en vacances de l'existence.
C'est exister en dehors des vacances.
 
Marcher,
C'est réussir à dépasser son ombre.
C'est pouvoir se doubler soi-même en s'envoyant un gentil salut au passage.
 
Marcher, c'est caresser le sol, le flatter, l'amadouer.
Une manière de se mettre la terre dans la poche avant qu'elle ne se referme à jamais.
 
Marcher, c'est être dans le secret des dieux.
C'est écouter à leurs oreilles et entendre avec eux des bruissements, des murmures qu'on croyait éteints.
 
Marcher, c'est se mêler à la conversation des arbres, aux commérages des oiseaux, aux persiflages des reptiles.
C'est se fondre dans la nature, se couler au fond du moule.
 
Marcher, est-ce que cela ne serait pas, en définitive, tourner avec ses pieds, au pas à pas, page après page, le grand livre de la vie ?
 
Extrait de "Fou de la marche" de Jacques Lanzmann aux Editions Robert Laffont.

@Martine Libouton: Wow beautiful poem! Thanks a lot! I think same, walk and discover all the treasures your journey keeping hide waiting for you to be found in the side of your own road is for me the essence of life! Someone's choose the security and safety of home, I choose the road! For me materials stuff doesn't matter, but experience and your time in life is the real gold! So you just have to walk around to found it!

Your name tag in the middle a slight distraction though

I have to agree with Grouser on the positioning of your name in the center of your images. I think it detracts from the shot.
