How many times did we think in our lives that if we go on vacation at some moment, the sky would fall unto us? The truth is that nobody is as important as to merit the contrary of a Big Bang.
There are individuals that became experts in finding reasons - excuses, really - to continue working with out any free time to spare, without going on vacation or doing anything else than working. These are the proverbial workaholics and dealing with their issues would need a full-scale study. Most people that put a definite priority on their jobs and responsibilities don't go as far but in some cases also exaggerates. How many of us can get rid or turn off a cell phone while travelling around? How many don't carry it in a 24/7/365 mode, that is 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year? How many of us are desperate not to lose that SMS that could come at any moment?
Modern means of communicating among us, telecommunications technologies and the whole way of life imposed by all the stuff surrounding us may be cool, but everything has a proper time and context, and we people seem to have accepted that globalisation is not a change in cultural flavours but a necessity able to override our privacy. But… guess what? Nobody is as important in the world, the sky will fall for no one because we are not like the fabled turtle that kept a flat Earth from sinking into a massive ocean created by God, as ancient people would believe.
Of course our job is important, but we shouldn't take things out of proportion: One of the astronauts that went to the Moon said once that while he was there, he happened to hide Earth from his view with one of his thumbs, and then he understood how little all our terrestrial problems are... and that includes not only our two world wars but also our really little, petty jobs and worries.We don't need to go to the Moon to find this out or to get rid of our woes while we travel. Perhaps by turning off that cell phone of ours while we enjoy the ride it would be enough as a start.
Pay attention to the view, and not the phone: Enjoy the things
you see as you travel and the things around you;
for phone calls and messages you have the rest of your life.
