The Lengthening Step


15. Porte de Chatillon

As the days get longer, we can leave later in the afternoon, making a new stretch in the hours. Often we arrive back at dusk with the tiredness of renewal, a satisfaction that is replete. It has become clear that we will not finish all the spokes of our wheel, the hours of our clock, on this visit, even walking as many as three or four a week.Sometimes when they are very close together, like  Chatillon and Porte d’Orleans as a case in point, their slight divergence can be made to reflect different territory.It’s probably as well that we have left the western-most walks until the end of our stay, as our circle of them is stretched in that direction, making them longer from there, and coinciding with the lengthening day.SC
