Today, We Hike.

I love the internet. I love computers. I love sitting inside my climate controlled home with my coffee within arms reach and a fan gently blowing on me. But, sometimes, I get restless, because while I am a house cat, I am also an outdoorsy person.

I like to hike, kayak and bike. I like to do these things early in the morning before the rest of the world realizes these activities are just waiting to be done.

Which is why early this morning, we set out to hike. I had been too much house cat and not enough person. I had only realized that when we climbed an incredibly steep incline after trekking down to the base of waterfall. I reached the top panting and smiling having used my body for actual locomotion. This is what I’ve been missing.

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is made apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
