Most of the books I read are digital library loans. I also borrow hardcopy books from various libraries of which I'm a member. Occasionally I buy a digital title, less occasionally I buy an actual paper book. I keeping a (long) running list of the books I want to read at Goodreads.

Fiction helps me understand the mind, heart, and body, the life experience of "the other", in the most relatable way possible, through story. It expands my cognitive and spiritual consciousness.

We go through experiences that wear us down to our core, and break our shell. And these experiences, like my long distance hike, will show us what's operating below the surface of our lives. And it won't be your goodness that will help light the path through this wreckage, it will be your courage.

While we were hiking I kept a trail journal. I wrote it in almost every day. I recorded our mileage, where we camped and notable points along the trail. I wrote about the people we met. I wrote my thoughts, feelings and frustrations. I wrote the good stuff and the bad stuff. In short form, I wrote about my brutiful experience on the Appalachian Trail. I'm now publishing that journal and my favorite photos of our hike at Outsideways.
