Friday Quote of the Day

14 Oct

“People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.”

Dagobert D. Runes

Can you think of a time that you may have done this?

I have noticed if I make believe that I am somewhere else when at a store or restaurant in my own home town I can simulate the feeling of being somewhere else.  See if you can do this too!  Next time you are out pretend you are in a different country and you’ll be amazed at what you notice that you may not have before.

Happy travels,

Em

    I love this idea 🙂 the world all of a sudden becomes larger and fascination automatically fills your mind with compassion!!! I can be anywhere in the world at any moment! Shall we meet in Bali ?

      Hi Crystal,
      You are so right!
      And, yes I’d love to meet in Bali!

      Till then,

    That is a picture of Pee Wee Herman!!!
    In this melting pot, it’s easy to pretend to be in another country, another developed country.

      Katie,
      Hahahaha. You are funny, but yes it does kind of look like an outdated Pee Wee Herman. Although, this man is a bit more well spoken dontcha think? Thanks for the comment!
