Reading and writing are adventures of the mind. So it makes sense that they can easily be compared to hiking or mountain climbing. Each word is a step. There will be curves and cliffs, mountains and canyons.
You can stay on the path or wander off in a new direction. You might get lost. Just don’t look down.
You can map it all out beforehand or let yourself be surprised. Remember to look back to see how far you’ve come.
No matter where you end up, you’re better off for taking those steps. Enjoy the view.

“Adventure is not outside man; it is within.” – George Eliot
