There is no substitute for time spent outdoors-even if it's a simple walk in the woods. For many years Niels S. Nokkentved has written about natural resources and environmental issues as a reporter, columnist and author in the Pacific Northwest. His writing took him deep into the deserts and mountains. He paddled lakes and rivers and camped and hiked in Washington's Cascade Mountains and Olympic Peninsula and in central Idaho's Sawtooth and the Boulder-White Cloud mountains. Nokkentved's writing about the Northwest shows a deep reverence for nature and a keen sense of place. His intention in assembling this book is to entice people to get outdoors by sharing his own adventures and the adventures of others he has met along the way. He shows readers that outdoor adventures don't require special equipment-other than good rain gear perhaps-or extensive expeditions to exotic places. While those sorts of thing definitely qualify, satisfying and worthwhile adventures can be had right outside the back door. Most of his adventures began within a half-hour of his home. Some others took a little longer. But the most important thing he learned was to just get outside-a simple walk along a stream or a farmer's field. He learned that if he had his eyes and ears open, adventure was sure to find him. And adventure is always its own reward, for as the late Justice William O. Douglas said, "the richness of life is found in adventure."


When we are doing something important , we keep returning to it ; and the reason
we have to keep coming back is that our attention to ... Most daydreams are
spontaneous in this way ; instead of being deliberate , they just pop into our
minds .

The Wandering Mind

If so, you’ve had a dissociative experience. The same is true if you’ve had an out-of-body moment or thought you were somewhere else as you drifted off to sleep. These are seemingly harmless and temporary dissociations.

Have you ever had a daydream? If so, you’ve had a dissociative experience. The same is true if you’ve had an out-of-body moment or thought you were somewhere else as you drifted off to sleep. These are seemingly harmless and temporary dissociations. But further down the spectrum of such experiences, you find people actually traveling to a strange city and suddenly not remembering how they got there. You also find people with multiple personalities and other disordered thinking. In The Wandering Mind, Dr. John Biever and co-author Maryann Karinch use the stories of people all along the spectrum of dissociative conditions—from those who are “perfectly normal” to those diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder—to expose the natures and functions of dissociation. Their lives and stories serve as a way of exploring chronic dissociation and the trek back to good mental health. The authors look closely at what signs and symptoms indicate normal, everyday dissociation, and those that indicate a more serious problem. While daydreamers may not meet the criteria for diagnosis, trauma victims who relive their nightmares in real time may require both diagnosis and treatment. The authors also delve into the phenomenon of deliberate dissociation, such as Buddhist monks in meditation. And they take a close look at the process of diagnosing a dissociative disorder as well as factors that put patients on the road to reintegration and recovery.
