I learned this lesson the hard way. Early on in my travels, I had 2-3 large suitcases that I was lugging around. And once upon a time, the luggage didn’t have wheels. What a workout!

If you are traveling and find you need a sweatshirt to keep warm, buy one there, and then you have something to remind you of your trip. Happy trails!

I went to our local recycling facility with my nephew a few days ago. We took 1,000 pounds of material that had been in my father’s barn. It got me to thinking about all the waste in the world. I saw an interview with Sir David Attenborough last week. He is 94 now and when he was 25 he had talked his bosses into letting him travel the world documenting animals, plants, and our landscapes to share with others. He talked about the changes in our world that he has observed #. It is troubling, to say the least. Pollution, destruction of our rain forests, and the list goes on.
The interviewer wanted to know if he would like to go and live on the moon. “Why would I do that?” He responded. “I can stay here and see the ocean, amazing animals and foliage, mountains, and the sky.” He was also asked what one piece of advice he would give to others and he said, “Don’t waste.” This includes food, natural resources and I would include on that list, ‘time’. So I’m going to unplug my phone and charger, shut down my computer, and take the dog outside for a walk. Will you join me? Please enjoy the 60 minutes interview attached.
