Emma Walks

Quest #16 was: “Celebrate human powered transportation in whatever form you wish!”

My favorite type of human-powered transport is…walking!

(I want to get into biking someday, but right now I don’t have a bike.)

Walking is a wonderful, natural way to move around. I really enjoy a walk through a park, an interesting town, or a forest.

Walking is also good for you, of course. And something else I’ve pondered is that you are more free when you walk than when you drive. Why?

Well, in short, many fewer laws apply to you when you walk. You can walk (or run) really, really fast or really, really slow. You can choose not to wear your prescription glasses. In some places, at least, you could drink a beer while walking. You do not need to be registered, licensed, or insured to walk. It’s free to walk – you don’t need to buy a car, gas, or pay any of the multitude of other costs of a car.

I drew this picture to celebrate walking.

Now, let’s go take a walk!

I love the idea of using scraps, bits, and odd things to make a print. I made mine with q-tips and a heart I cut out of cardboard. I glued them to an empty incense box, inked them, and pressed onto the paper!

Here’s my small (about 1×2 inches) print!

It shows trees and a heart, because I love trees! Or maybe these trees love each other. =)

I just think it’s really cute. This is a fun technique that I’d like to try in different ways in the future.
