on being here

living like a tourist all the time …

When I travel, I put a lot of effort into being a tourist.

I find out stuff about where I am, things to do there and / or on the way, places to see, new places to eat, the most interesting way to get from one place to another.

“Well,” I wondered “what would happen if I put in the same sort of effort, no matter where I was? Even, maybe especially, when I was at home.”  “And what might happen if I was just more appreciative of and attentive to the stuff that I get to do as part of my life every day?”

This is my shot at “living like a tourist, all the time”
