Instead of trying to find some ideal hotel at a distant sea shore, try an old familiar place where the proprietors will love you on first sight. There will be less packing of suit cases, far fewer errands to run or trains and planes to catch to simply go. Stop by a local book store and buy that novel you have always wanted to save for that big vacation. Go on tour with it locally instead. Start this off easily. Sit in a comfortable chair waterside and turn to the first page after checking in. No taxi was needed to get to the front door of this place. You are ready and there in fifteen minutes quickly enough, ready to slow down sooner than expected.

There it is: the first page is turned; the minutes it takes to get to the end of the first chapter go by in a place in the world that you are already used to. It is about as swift a change that was really needed—that you could ask for without hesitation—from your daily life. This is the start of your adventure locally.

Go to chapter two and discover that all of the vistas and people you wanted to see are there surrounding you. Everybody is aware that you are there too—a local diplomat—to watch and to get over because that vista is just what they needed as well. And there it was the whole time right in your own city by the bay. Mutter thickly: “That wasn’t half bad at all. I live here; they see me where I already reside.” The music has started and no one in particular will hear your words.
