Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"This, I am reminded, is why I love walking in the city, taking to the streets in pursuit of some sponaneous and near-arbitrary objective. If one knocks oneself out of one's routine-and in so doing knocks others gently out of theirs-then one can now and again create these momentary opportunities to be better than one is."
"Whenever "everyone" is doing something, I seek to avoid it. But whenever someone tells me not to do something, the thing has a way of becoming the only thing that I want to do."
