Day 2 Athens: Having Fun In A College Town

October 13, 2012



After a nice dinner last night, we (that would be me, Robyn, and now Hilary) came back to the hotel; the beautiful, historic Hilton Garden Inn Athens (it is neither beautiful nor historic, but that sounds so much better.  It is located downtown Athens which is super convenient).  We settled in and watched a movie – The Magic of Belle Island with Morgan Freeman.  Its an easy film, slow and comfortable to watch.  The story is a bit complex, but not movie-style complex with twisted characters and constant flashbacks.  Its complex in the way real life can be.  People dealing with their current lives, based on their lives of the past.  Lots of everyday emotions.  Great dialogue. Loved Carl or is it Diago? Cant tell behind that mask (you’ll have to see it to understand).  But like all good movies or books, they get one thinking.  “What would happen if you REALLY opened yourself up to looking at things around you?”  and I dont mean just looking with your eyes, but with your heart, mind, and soul? Opening up to look at life and the people around you with imagination.  Yep, imagination.  I grew up thinking that imagination fell into that spare childhood room in our minds that we only opened when on vacation in Disneyland or when entertaining someone elses kid you got stuck babysitting on a rainy saturday afternoon.  Nope, it appears that opening your mind and releasing your imagination, in everyday situations can help you to see things as they should be, or could be- if you let them.  Thought for the day:  “See the world with a mind full of Imagination”. Even if it is disney-esque, every place should be the Happiest Place On Earth.  Ill go for that!

Time to wake up the girls.  Anyone that knows what its like to wake up Hilary in the morning, will understand that I must have my Imagination in full swing!  or maybe not, it is naturally a bit like slaying a fire-breathing dragon.
