Have you ever thought you might have ended up in the wrong life but you have no idea how to change things? At a personal crossroads and exiled in Paris, writer, journalist, broadcaster and musician Richard Lewis discovers the zen of walking. In the process, he discovers the gentle motion acts as a gateway to productive reverie — or unconscious cognition: a way to feel better, solve problems and generate big ideas. Over the course of 30 walks, Lewis tackles notions of self-care and psychological wellbeing in a sensitively-scored stream of consciousness, with a stated aim of lessening emotional pain and increasing personal agency. Part personal history, part self-improvement, part primer in philosophy, quantum physics and social psychology, it’s a thought provoking and profoundly moving meditation on the human condition.
