Things We Take For Granted

Just read a CNN interview (World’s scariest airlines? Sign him up) with a journalist who decided he wanted to travel and see the less-than-shiny parts of the world.  This part of the interview jumped out at me the most because I feel it’s so dang true, and try though I might, I know I take what I have for granted:

Hoffman: […] But at the end of those journeys, I always was almost desperate to get to a hotel where I could have my own bed, be by myself and have a cold beer. We tend to think of affluence as the acquisition of objects, but I realized that what makes us so rich in much of the developed world is cleanliness and space.
