We unexpectedly got tickets for an advanced screening of World Trade Center:
“You want to go see that movie?”
“I don’t think so. Maybe you should take your sister.”
“But it’s free.”
“That’s not a really good reason to see a movie.”
“What did the guy who hates everything say about it.”
“They spend half the movie trapped under debris.”
“Oh… a claustrophobia movie…” I think about it for a minute, but I really don’t need to. “Yeah, I guess you wouldn’t want to see that… Maybe Stacey and Dan want the tickets.”
Sometimes the critics can tell us EXACTLY what we need to know.

It’s summer here in the northern hemisphere and that means vacation time. People all over the United States plan elaborate trips. We spend a ton of money.
Trying to relax.
Trying to have fun.
Whenever I travel, I try to minimize the activities. I don’t want my day planned to the minute. I don’t want to sit around asking “What should we do?” either. I want to have some activities and I want to have some time to “just sits.”
If you want to know how I travel and would like to find a less expensive way to relax on your two weeks of freedom, visit me at Starling Travel:
Maybe this year, you’ll have the vacation that you really need and quit trying to “have fun.”

Visit Starling Travel and find out how to actually enjoy traveling again.

Hugh Macleod draws comics on the back of business cards. It’s a creative outlet that works well for him and now, it is finally paying off. Back in August of 2004, he wrote a 31-item list entitled “How To Be Creative.”
This list is a treasure chest of good advice. Some of my favorite quotations are here:
