The walking man

He walks through the night slowly with no fear of what is around him. Even though he is alone and wields no weapon, he continues deeper into the cold night. He stops near a tree and stops. He then sits underneath it and starts to fall asleep to the sound of nothing.
He awakens as the sun is peaking over the mountain top biding him good morning. The man stands and continues walking. He actually doesn't know where he is going, he doesn't even know why he is going there, but he walks on through the world and its challenges.

Years ago, I read about Australian Aboriginal peoples doing what some call "walkabout," where they simply decide that today's the day, they stop, and ...walk.

I like the concept, and this is a really dramatic and well-articulated vignette.
