The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

  2. Is that the same thing as needing a vacation after the vacation? Or are you talking about the ramping up of shopping madness? Either way, this is a portrait of a guy who is pretty pooped. A quiet walk in the woods looking for more mushrooms will do him a world of good.

  3. Seems like there is a major-major emphasis on "buying" this year, turning Black Friday into a month-long event, and trying to convince us that the only way that we are going to be happy is satiating our material desires.

    When I was a kid my parents used the promise of Xmas as coercion for encouraging me to "behave", so I either had to be on my best behavior, or be really sneaky about what I was up to, starting as early as July.

  4. so much organizing of 'things' and time goes into a period of time away from home, we call a 'holiday'! It's forgetting the day to days at least and spending time and thought on a brand new place.....it gives our mind a holiday at least
