Practicing opening lines . . .

Here's a sample: 

The Walker

The day is humid now, and the leaf-filtered light is green on the woodland path. I have been walking a long time, but I don't know how long. I do not recall beginning this walk. I recall becoming aware of myself walking.

Naked go I. I know that I am naked. I know what clothes are. Have I ever worn clothes? I do not know. How can I know so much and know so little? . . .

Enticing? But where do I go (so to speak) from here?Would third-person singular work better? And which gender, masculine or feminine?
