Something I have often thought. Those that use longer more difficult to worlds when there are simpler words lose their message and encounter resistance to thier ideas.
A loving note from someone who is no longer here.

"A book that can change your life!"
ONE moment you're conscious, the next you're not. For the first time, researchers have switched off consciousness by electrically stimulating a single brain area.
Scientists have been probing individual regions of the brain for over a century, exploring their function by zapping them with electricity and temporarily putting them out of action. Despite this, they have never been able to turn off consciousness – until now.Read More

A great perspective on travel can be had from this blog
When I started traveling, my dad asked what I’m running away from. My mother constantly wants to know when I will “settle down” and join the “real world”. Someone once commented on my blog and told me to stop running away and live life. There was even a blog called “Mom says I’m Running Away” once.
I’m not sure why, but there is this perception out there that anyone who travels long-term and isn’t interested in settling down or getting a conventional job must be running away from something.
This is a simple method and highly effective. I have used it myself many times and most recently explained it to my daughter who is at her first year of University.
