Inhale, Exhale, Repeat ~ Route 16

new-hampshire-barn-12-of-12Mental well-being doesn’t always required a physician or a prescription.  Sometimes all it may take is the open road.  Inclined to make an itinerary?  Don’t.  Just have a vague idea of where you want to go and the direction you should travel to get there.  Make a pit stop at a coffee shop, bakery, pub, or whatever that is local to the area. Keep your phone in the car or in your pocket; talk to people.  You don’t have to engage in heavy conversation, you could just say hello.  If you see an interesting trail and think, “I wonder what’s down there,” stop the damn car and find out.  You don’t need to reach your intended destination; sometimes your destination is your journey.  Don’t believe me?  Try it.  My recent prescription happened to be Route 16 in New Hampshire.

About The Author

Editor in Chief

My name is Roger Paige, aka The Focused Traveler. Periodically I am also known as hey you, yahoo, and dinkus. For the last three years I have claimed the revered title of a Masshole by moving to Massachusetts. Prior to that I lived in Southern California for nearly thirty years. That would be the place where I cut my teeth in the media world’s pacifier called the web. What Exactly Do I Do? I am a time-traveler, a raconteur, lensman, and cinematographer. Well, the time-traveler may be a stretch but I like the term, so it’s staying. Telling stories is my thing. Telling stories along with pictures and video is my even bigger thing. Telling stories on social media platforms about how awesomely amazing brands and their products are by using my stories, photographs and video is my even bigger BIGGER thing. I photograph: food, both static and squirming on the plate, people, places, things, whatchamacallits and thingamajigs. My imagination knows no boundaries.
