That gives me time to figure out a scenario or to create a scene in my mind. If I need to write a blog post or an article, the break gives me time to search through my mind for that little something with which I've had experience which might also interest or instruct others.(less)

I loved this well-researched and well-told story of the first woman to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. She walked it the first time in 1955 before the trails were well-marked or well-maintained. What an amazing woman!
