Don't waste your money trying to buy the perfect view, the unique
experience. If there could be enough money, would buying the moment feel
as good as having it handed to you? There should be no ticket to the
destination of a memory, only the gift of the journey.
The memories that will last will not be the deep canyon views, they won't
be the cruises to the middle of an ocean to watch a solar eclipse, nor will
they be the view of thousands of icebergs floating to sea.
The memories that will last will be the child meeting her first butterfly,
nose to nose, the shooting star that promising wishes fulfilled and the hug
from someone who doesn't want you to leave.
I've taken photos, I've been given memories.
