Always Bring Your Own Toothpaste

Who hasn’t laid awake thinking about a vacation or traveling. Our last trip was a week in the car through 4 New England states – with no advance reservations. I’d do it again, but 2 or 3 weeks would be preferred, and at least a couple of reservations planned in advance. Especially around the college towns! We happen to hit the area during the annual parents visitation week! So we learned our lesson about lodging.

Lessons on Traveling

Lessons on Traveling

It’s certain that we all learn lessons while traveling, some more lasting than others. Some even worth sharing.

27 people were asked for the most important lesson they learned while traveling. They responded with a variety of answers from the fascinating, to the practical.

You’ll find in the full article such things as:

  •   “…one of the best experiences of your life.”
  •   “Always be mindful of pickpockets…”
  •   “…you never know where you’re going to meet the rest of your life.”
  •   “You can’t bring the life you’re trying to get away from with you.”
  •   “The most important trips of my life were always the one where I didn’t know quite where I was going until I got there: A METAPHOR.”

and my favorite, “Always bring your own toothpaste.

Don’t exactly know why that’s my favorite, after all, we always do bring our own! Maybe it’s just the thought of stating the obvious.

Top 5 Regrets of the Dying

I promoted an event some time ago by Dr. Anna Michelle and think highly of her and her work. Naturally then, she’ll be on my mind at times.

This recent image was a bit atypical of her nature, but the take-away is…

Live Life to the Fullest!

and that fits right in to her inspirational ways.

The 60s Were Important to Me

The 60s were important to me.

I think too that this will inspire some thoughts for tonight, and many nights to come.

If you haven’t experienced this for yourself yet, it will come, welcome or not, it will come.

“In My Life – There are places I’ll remember all my life, though some have changed.

Some forever, not for better; some have gone and some remain.

All these places had their moments with lovers and friends I still can recall. 

Some are dead and some are living, in my life I’ve loved them all…”

(The Beatles)

Sometimes It’s Worth the Trip

It’s midnight. Better (although incorrectly) written as “mid-night” since it’s not 12 o’clock midnight, it is of that period in those hours called the midnight hours… Time for my first post.

To simply say “Hello World” would be appropriate enough right now, but what a sad way to start that would be! So let me tell you, this being “Thoughts at Midnight“, it’ll be difficult to predict what gets posted day-by-day, night-by-night, so, please come back often to see what is in the ol’ noggin – exposed…

Tonight, a worthy thought for my first post at Thoughts at Midnight

Sometimes, it’s worth the trip.

I’ll let the image do the rest of the talking. It’s one worth sharing!
