I listened to this piece more than a month ago and when I listened I liked it, but I did not come away with particularly strong feelings one way or the other. But I keep thinking about it! …. coming back to images and memories, especially the sound of walking, and the wide thoughts about the meaning of walking and walking and walking. To many American ears, I think this piece might sound slow and unusual. But there is quiet and deep beauty in this piece – the topic and the choices about how to explore it. Worth listening to!
