As part of your formation with the Order of Walkers, there are questions you must pose to gain insight and promote growth. Ponder the age old “Why I walk”? A simple question but a difficult answer to articulate. There are no wrong answers. It’s a big sky and your essay of reasoning has a place.
The question to oneself, Why do I walk ? perhaps speaks to why The Order exists and why it continues to regenerate with an unfailing youthful enthusiasm. I admire those who have sat down and constructed a coherent essay as to why they walk. It is not an easy navigable path. It cuts to the person you are and the way you see the world.
The Order commends this “Why I Walk” essay by Ben Kilbourne to you.
