The world reveals itself to those who travel on foot - Werner Herzog

@kin decades ago i serviced big data center gear, mostly high-speed line printers + cold fusion plasma ray guns.

abt twice a month, i'd see an older guy walking on the side of the road - well-worn suit, old tie + almost worn-out shoes, carrying a bag full of shoe samples. he was a door-to-door shoe salesman who took orders.

i picked him up a few times + gave him a lift. it was apparent quickly that those rides may have been the only times those days that he was off his feet.

@jbminn I bet the world revealed itself to him in many interesting ways over the years!
