Growing connections to a place by walking

Our well-being is also to how well we relate to the places we are… and one of the best ways of relating, to “grow roots”, could be by walking

Relating to the landscapes

Drawn story by Frits Ahlefeldt.

To feel at home we need to relate to the places we are, to their stories and to the landscapes. The metaphor of growing roots is often used as an image to why it is important to feel at home. And walking could be one of the best way of doing this, as the slow pace, the chance to meet people and understand the distances is all important. And taking it step by step, is a real simple way to relate.

Growing roots can make us feel at home

About Museum of Psychology – Visualizing psychology
We understand reality at least through a combination of metaphors, images, stories and experiences. But also through our dreams, understandings, feelings, music, walk of life, directions, expectations, relations… and even more dimensions.

Much of this have in common that we can somehow sketch up maps and drawings of these places, trails and situations. Here on Museum of Psychology I (Frits Ahlefeldt) am drawing up a slowly growing map of our many landscapes of understanding.
