It's impossible to believe it has been 16 weeks! This week's question was about travel, and we're pretty happy with the winner. It was a broad question and we got a wide open answer. Thanks to those who took part, and we'll see you for our final question of this incredible 17-week run on Monday.

It’s impossible to believe it has been 16 weeks! This week’s question was about travel, and we’re pretty happy with the winner. It was a broad question and we got a wide open answer. Thanks to those who took part, and we’ll see you for our final question of this incredible 17-week run on Monday.

Week 16 Question: What’s the greatest benefit of traveling?

Travel breaks you out of your “home” mindset. If things are getting stale or you’re feeling exhausted, travel provides a distance from your regular routine that gives you perspective. It opens you up to new experiences and new ways of thinking about things.

If it’s a vacation, you’re recharged. But even if it’s a business trip you’re getting that new perspective that can only strengthen your understanding of things. It’s not just about getting away for me (although who doesn’t love to bobble in the surf on a beach somewhere?). It’s about how great things feel when you return home.

We got all excited for Spring when we wrote this week’s question. Then it went and got a little wintry on us again. Thanks to those who took part and we’ll be back Monday with a hopefully weather-appropriate new addition to the Story Contest.

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 9

Since we had a repeat winner last week we felt justified in picking 2 winners for this one (even though one of those was also a repeat winner). The usual tie-breaker was no help because all 3 of us agreed both of these stories were pretty great.

#NieldsXVII Story Contest : Week 13

This week’s question was a little out there, and we weren’t disappointed with the responses. The winning answer was both fun and thoughtful. It made us think a little of that line of Shakespeare’s, about music being the food of love. Thanks to the winner and everyone who participated this week. We’ll see you again on Monday!
