I find it a distraction. I'm a writer and have never been able to write with music on either, it just draws me and I lose focus. I will be so glad when I've graduated and can leave my headphones behind, as it's just one more thing to remember and get in the way. Apart from that, I want to be connected to my surroundings, to the sights, smells and sounds of my journey, the sense of oneness with the earth and sky (even if it is just along the roads during winter, LOL), the rhythm of my feet and breathing.
