Path - A short story about reciprocity Louisa Thomsen Brits

‘Walk with me. Together we will pattern the earth, tracing the surface of the land.’

Many of us enjoy walking along a familiar path. Our spirits lift as our mind quietens; our soul is restored by the natural beauty and endurance of the landscape. As we adjust to the rhythm of walking, the earth offers up support and reassurance.

In Path, a beautifully written parable from the unique and soulful voice of Louisa Thomsen Brits, a solitary figure walks through uncertainty and isolation to reach an understanding that they are not alone, but part of the world around them.

Blending storytelling and nature writing, Path is an invitation to experience aliveness and moments of connection that lift us to a wider perspective. The book’s meditative journey features film photography and original artworks that complement the lyrical prose and perfectly capture the luminosity of the chalk paths of Sussex.

A positive, life-affirming tale offering encouragement and reassurance.
