nah — it’s cool — normally if i’m awake for 18 hours i know i’m gonna be looking at a screen or listening to something for 17 hours and 50 minutes of those 18 hours — the silent walk let’s me have an hour or so where i get to just sort of exist without any digital stimulus
I walk just over a mile to work most days, and the outdoor noise makes it harder for me to focus my thoughts. So, I need a podcast or music to allow my mind to zone out and sort itself out.
I don’t mind people listening to music while they walk, bike or run. But Santa needs to bring earphones to the 75% of San Antonio’s population who share their jams at top volume with everyone else trying to just enjoy a walk on the river.
