Travel Quote for Monday - Length vs. Width


LIFE IS SHORT, MAKE IT WIDE

Staying at a hostel in Valladolid, Mexico, I met an older traveller about whom there was a lot I admired (and aspired). His business card fancies him as an "entrepreneur, adventurer, traveler, troubador, eccentric" and from the few days we hung out, it all seemed true enough (and then some; I'm looking forward to reading the book he wrote*). At the top of his business card was this phrase: "life is short, make it wide". He also had a very well written song that said the same. I thought it was as good a quote as any to add to my Monday traveling quotes series, to be reminded, whenever I have occasion to review past posts, to do just that—make it wide.

Hey Wren, this made me think of you...although who but a northwesterner would honestly consider a house with no windows when the above pic is available? http://tinyhouseblog.com/tiny-house/underground-micro-homes-part-2/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook
