Quite a hike …

… A Thousand Miles for Love - Crisis Magazine.

Then it hit me: I’d read about someone who’d lived the Proclaimers’ song, someone who did walk 1,000 miles for love. I’m talking about Hilaire Belloc, the curmudgeonly Edwardian writer, historian, and Catholic apologist, and one of G.K. Chesterton’s closest friends.
Ah, there were days when I would hike a good 20 miles just for the sheer pleasure of it.
