I read to get away. When our house burned about 9 years ago, I calculated that Ilost over 2,000 books, some that can never be replaced. When I need a temporary respite, I have a scene that I retreat to. In my time in the military, I worked on a Radar site that was off base on a country road. It had snowed about 4 inches the night before, but without any wind. As I proceeded up the road, I was the second one as there was a solitary set of tracks which were very crisp. The rising sun cast a shadow in the track, and nothing else was moving. I go there in my mind’s eye to get away and most times, after a few minutes, I have visualized an answer. This will not work in an immediate threat situation but it has helped me get through many stressful situations over the last 50+ years. Ron S
