Christmas to a child is the first terrible proof that to travel hopefully is better than to arrive.
Pre-Christmas is very important, and it is stressful, and, you know, even in the biblical story... travelling on the donkey in a stressful environment.
My Christmas present to myself each year is to see how much air travel can open up the world and take me to places as far from sheltered California and Japan as possible.
I just travel all the time. And I was just looking at the schedules now and starting the first week of October I will be every weekend with somebody at tournaments through Christmas. So it gets very difficult to just go away and not do that.
Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas.
Wherever you go, go with all your heart.
