In a Few Words

I’m preparing messages to go into my satellite device. Typing on it in the field is cumbersome. I’m allowed twenty messages, 160 characters each. It is making me have to really think about the words I will choose and what it is I will most want to convey with you folks back home.

If we all had to limit our conversations to twenty lines per day what would they be? What story would you write in twenty lines?


Mary Anderson is writing a book about her trek along the 3,000-mile Continental Divide Trail, a journey of healing that she began in her sixties. Mary hiked the southern half of the trail in 2020 and is undertaking the northern half this year.
