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.

  1. Yes we become a bit nostalgic in those winterdays. I remember me making a phone call in Spain to my father who had his birthay. It was at a very noisy crowded boulevard and you had to put coins in the machine very quickly otherwise you lost the connection.

  8. Amazing to me how quickly technology changes everything, and that phone booths have become objects of curiosity!

  9. I tried to relay a "car breaking down" story from my long-ago youth to a group of teenagers. There was no pay phone nearby, so I had to walk to a house. "What's a pay phone?" They asked.
