Where dreams come from

Most people would say the middle of the night while you're sleeping.  And yeah, I kind of agree with that except I don't sleep during the middle of the night very often due to work so sometimes dreams come from the middle of the night while you are trying to keep yourself awake to keep your night schedule going.  Just the other night I was staying up so that I would be able to sleep during the day before work and was flipping through the TV struggling to stay awake when I came across the very tail end of a movie called Wild  it has Reese Witherspoon in it.  It's about a woman who felt her life was crumbling around her and she decided to hike alone to clear her head and find herself (well at least I think.  It was just the end of the movie so I'm not too sure.)
Thanks to google I have learned that this movie was based on a true story that was written by Cheryl Strayed.  My long time rule is that if a movie is based on a book you must first read the book (my girls hate that rule and are now old enough to break I'm pretty sure they do too) I love reading and I have not found a movie that was better than the book yet.  It just doesn't happen.  The book is always better.  Trust me...ALWAYS.
So thanks to the world at my fingertips I went right to amazon and ordered the book "Wild  From lost to found on the Pacific Crest Trail"  By Cheryl Strayed.
I cannot explain it but just the tail end of a movie that I had never even heard of has sparked something inside me.  I've done more reading and research on hiking in the last 3 days than I have my whole life.  I can't wait to read this new book (and the other book I bought that night Oklahoma Hiking Trails) and see where the spark spreads.
I do know one thing for certain...I think I'll take a hike☺

When was the last time you did something for the very first time?

Thanks for reading.
