I’ve been doing quite a few of them. Everyone seems to be travelling. Well, at least a number of my clients.
Trip charts are useful. For example, my friend, Alluring Artist has tagged along on a business trip with her significant other. I run a chart for the time the person shuts the front door (if he or she is not actually piloting the airplane – then it’s when they are trundling down the runway in said aircraft) and will not go back in the house.
Alluring Artist is leaving the house a different time than the significant other. Hence, two trip charts.
It was interesting to do the two charts. Two very different experiences. The original time Significant Other was leaving was disastrous for his professional objectives. When I told him so (based upon the time he gave me) he mentioned that he’d actually moved the time back an hour. I said, "Nudge it back an additional fifteen minutes if you want success." He said he’d be happy to oblige.
The trip chart will tell you about the purpose of the trip, how much money you have to travel with, who’s paying for it, what the weather will be like, who your travelling companions are, what kinds of experiences you’ll have there and whether or not you’ll go back, and so on. They can also alleviate disasters to a certain extent. They are well worth investigating.
As well, you can do a trip chart for any type of trip: vacations, business trips, hospital stays, legal briefings, trysts, everything! *smiling*
Congratulate me: I’ve lost ten pounds. Less stress on my poor knee. My clothes fit better. It is a good thing.
This weekend I’ve been busy converting the audio cassette tapes of Alan Bennett’s plays. If you’re curious you can read about the plays here:
I had to figure out how to hook up the cassette player to my computer so that I could convert them from tape to cd. I’ve got one more side to copy onto the computer and then I can burn the cds. I love technology!
The reason I’m doing so is for the book club I belong to.
Although they looked a little shocked and bemused when Alan suggested listening to cassette tapes instead of reading a book this time ’round. I checked on the ‘net and they are in book form but the plays are so good…why miss the chance to hear them performed. I’m enjoying them immensely. The British know how to write.
Tomorrow I’m off to the orthpedic surgeon. Crossing fingers. There may be surgery in my near future.
