When the world believes in a future of self-driving cars, I dream of a future of self-walking humans. When the world is excited about installing sensors for smart parking, I think of walking as the smartest parking solution.

When the world starts debating technology as humanity’s savior, I go for a walk in the park.

The flash fiction story Walking against the flow is part of the flash fiction collection Flash 52.
