walking towards intimacy

As I have been walking this weekend, I've been pondering why I like my old stamping grounds better than my new ones.

The conclusion I came to (as I walked down to Malo) was I've walked around the old places a lot more. I've walked in all sorts of moods, weathers, times of life, and to a certain degree with all sorts of people.

I'm figuring there are some places where walking makes you hate a place or feel less safe, but my experience of walking involves making me like a place more, to feel more intimate with it and more like I belong there. It makes me feel safer and more concerned with the development of the area. I don't find driving has the same effect.
