Power and a Fox: Inspired by Aminatta Forna’s article “Power Walking” and a Day of Foxes.

Watercolor and gouache on paper

Aminatta Forna‘s article Power Walking speaks and feels the truth of walking as a woman. A few months ago, this article stood sentinel on the magnet board in my hallway so that each of us in my family could read Aminatta’s wisdom. Power Walking opens wide a perspective so we all can get a taste of vulnerability, of power, of walking.

Today, Aminatta filled her Twitter feed with images of foxes, harkening to her book Happiness. The foxes inspired me to return to Power Walking and to process and share through today’s piece.
