and something for any kind of adventure you seek out.”

“most people think of las vegas, and they think of extravagance.
but it’s really a mix between fantasy and laziness.”

my staycation agenda:
“take wrong turns. talk to strangers. open unmarked doors.
and if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing.
do things without always knowing how they will turn out.”
come to think of it, i’ve done this my whole life

the end of a wonderful, relaxing weekend away.
“babies don’t need a vacation but i still see them at the beach.
i’ll go over to them and say,
“what are you doing here, you’ve never worked a day in your life!”
an early long weekend
a couple of hours drive
and miles away
it’s time to have a
light show/jump on the beds/stay up late
kind of end to the day
tonight we fly.
“it is not the jumps you made in your life,
but mostly the jumps you haven’t made that are the real source of regrets in your life.”
