"Though an entirely commonplace activity, walking has long rewarded contemplation."

My walks have been fueling Grand theories. I envision the former theater being purchased and converted into a live music venue not unlike Headliners.
On walking: Pedestrian observations (The Economist)

... Kant went on the same stroll through Königsberg every day at 5 o'clock, and altered his route only twice: once to get an early copy of “Emile”, and once when news came that revolution had broken out in France. Long, meandering walks, it seems, fuelled the grandest theories: Nietzsche and Rousseau favoured them. Walter Benjamin noticed the urban flâneur amid the crowd. Gandhi made an art of the protest march.
