Fun & Free Stuff
Most of us lead very hectic lives these days and people often tell me they wish they could come adventuring with me. I guess they think all I do is trip around the globe taking photos. Well, that's partly true, but you have to remember that tripping around the globe has it's down side as well as its highlights. For instance, there's the jet lag to consider - that debilitating condition that turns your body upside down and inside out for at least a day and sometimes several days depending on the destination. And then there's the separation from my family, which often means that I miss important events.
Then there's the fact that when I do get home I have lots of images to sort and processing to get done - even with digital - and then there's the huge backlog of Emails and other administrative work to catch up with. I have my own boring bits to deal with, just like everyone else.
All that said, however, I believe that life is meant to be fun. So wherever I am on the planet, I try to have the best possible time. We previously published some of the "Leisure Activities" my assistant and I thought up during those many trips to the United States leading up to the launch of our America Wide book in 2001. We played ice skating without skates, racing shopping trolleys, headstands in the snow, corn cob juggling and hay bale rolling, just to mention a few. So you see, I like fun as much as anyone.
That's the reason why I was determined to have lots of fun stuff and free toys on my web site. Although it's great to have a job you love and to keep busy, it's essential to keep a healthy balance between work and play because as we journey through life, a wholesome measure of fun and laughter can help lighten the load of modern living. Hopefully, our free toys and activities will put a smile on your dial and inspire you to make the most of those fun moments in your journey through life and to share them with the ones you love.
