Our senses, after all, were developed to function at foot speeds; and the transition from foot travel to motor travel, in terms of evolutionary time, has been abrupt. The faster one goes, the more strain there is on the sense, the more they fail to take in, the more confusion they must tolerate or gloss over and the longer it takes to bring the mind to a stop in the presence of anything. Though the freeway passes through the very heart of this forest, the motorist remains several hours’ journey by foot from what is living at the edge of the right-of-way. — Wendell Berry, “An Entrance to the Woods”
