Just a Thought...

My cousin recently purchased a home in Tacoma, WA, so I went up there last weekend to visit and as he put it, "Show him all the stuff he hasn't seen in Tacoma." I think sometimes we get used to going certain places or doing certain things. It's not a novel concept but just a friendly reminder that sometimes it's fun to play tourist in your own town. And, if your interested in Tacoma, below are some nice pictures of the Chihuly Bridge of Glass and the flowers in W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory at Wright Park.

Funny you mention that. My husband and I are always going to see something--big, small, odd, different, mainstream. I know many people who have lived in this area for their whole LIVES who have not seen what we have seen in 3.5 years. Not even close. Things in their own small towns, they know nothing about, but we've checked out.

Some people like familiarity. Others like something new. And it seems that whatever side you are on, there's also a healthy dose of greener grass syndrome that pops up! "I just wish I could find one place I wanted to go again and again," says the person that loves to see/do new things. "I wish I could do something new and different!" says the person who has the place they go to regularly.
