I am off topic again, this time to share a recent book that I read.
The Great Alone, by Dutchman Tim Voors, is an account of one man's solo walk across the entire Pacific Crest Trail. Voors battled, heat, wind, cold, thirst and intense isolation over the 2600+ mile trek. An inward look on an outward trail.
The book is also a visual feast with stunning photographs.
I cannot help but envy Voors' courage and determination to escape the hyper-connectedness and over packed schedules of this day and age, albeit non-permanently.
To experience growth and overcome fear, look inward and seek a great alone.
