The Whole Picture is Nothing But a Compilation of Details.

Local travel

Travel begins the moment you open your eyes and ears. Today's trip took me to the Boston Common where I took a seat on a bench down by the pond.
I caught myself smiling at the ducks. They sound silly.

Public Primping Part 2: Males

The man in front of me moved his hand back and forth to his face in a very odd way. Intrigued by the odd continuous movement I took a closer look. I shouldn't have: he was shamelessly pulling out stubble and in-grown hairs with a pair of tweezers. For ten minutes. Then came the cologne - and plenty of it. Grooming in all honor, but pulling out ingrown hairs in public? What's next? Squeezing pimples? Yuck.

Good Harbor Beach Oct 2011
You’ve got a 9-5′er.
You’ve got kids.
You’ve got debt.
You’ve got no money, seriously.
You’ve got an expired passport.

What you’ve got are excuses.

A walk beyond your front door is travel.
The only thing you need for a trip is curiosity.

Primping in Public

Sitting next to a woman who has no qualms about doing her entire morning routine on the commuter rail, from spot cleaning her clothes to rubbing lotion on hands, arms and face before then launching into a very detailed make-up application. When finished, she sticks her hand in her enormous (I know why!) handbag and pulls out a homemade egg McMuffin lookalike sandwich wrapped in a piece of paper towel and scoffs it down. Toothbrush next? (Oh god I hope not.) Nope... Check book. Phew. But here comes the mouthwash! Ugh.
