A Thought for the Week

by John M Grimes

A well-known traveler, noted for his phenomenal memory of things seen and experienced, revealed his secret to a young man about to embark on his first trip abroad.
"When you find yourself looking at one of the wonders of the world or living through a great moment, close your eyes for a little while and imagine that the experience is long past and you are at home again. Ask yourself what you might have done to heighten the experience; how you might have behaved if you had it all to do over again."
We think this suggestion is a useful one, not merely for travelers, but for everyday people pursuing everyday purposes, pleasures and obligations.
As we enter the New Year perhaps this suggestion will be of value in making this a most rewarding and fulfilling year for each of us.
Happy New Year!
