Directions Magazine Issue 17 (Odyssey) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. This issue is all about the joy, creativity and solace to be found in the simple act of walking. Walking is an act and culture older than humanity itself, one that binds us to the land, and lets our imaginations take flight. With the whole world feeling out of step, it seemed natural to take walking as our anchor for this year’s issue. In an extraordinary time for travel, with a great deal of care and hope, our global and diverse team of writers, artists and photographers set out to investigate how the steady beat of putting one foot in front of the other has the power to ground us, connect us, and carry us forward into change.
