Like writing, walking may also amount to a mixture of imprimatur and erasure. But does my walking nearly replace one grid with another? There’s something tyrannical, Sisyphean, in passing over the same ground over and over again, in being compelled (or compelling oneself) to do so. And yet I am likely the only one who will ever walk these exact paths – they would lead one so ludicrously out of one’s way. But then, that’s their purpose.
