Now that I'm back in Colorado I've had a few days to begin reflecting on my Alaska experience.  Something really amazing has occurred to me that I really did not see coming.  After spending the last four months without easy access to hot water, toilets, dishwashers, TV's and many other modern conveniences I have begun to notice just how convenient our lives have become in today's society. Folks we live like Kings and Queens.  No.....we live BETTER than Kings and Queens did a few hundred years ago.   Going to Alaska has made me finally really appreciate those simple conveniences that I have been taking for granted most of my life.  Like Hot Water :)  Now I never used to get real excited by hot water, but yesterday when I turned on the kitchen faucet and got really hot, soothing water a huge smile came over me.  How great it is that we can simply turn a faucet and get all the hot water we need....right there in the kitchen!  Alaska made me realize it wasn't always that way.  And right down the hallway...just a few feet away is my very own toilet and shower!  I'm the ONLY ONE using these.  The shower is this huge chasm of space .... heck 3 or 4 folks have room to shower in here .... but it's ALL mine. Wow.  I guess I could go on and on regarding various things I notice now that I did not use to .... but you get the idea.  My purpose in writing this blog is to suggest that you consider going somewhere (like Alaska) and living the simple life for a while.  It's really is amazing how much more you will appreciate your real life when you return.  Till next time ....
