Thinking about Leisure…

Sunrise, Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina

Travel professionals deal in leisure…whether we be travel agents, travel writers, location independent entrepreneurs, or a dozen other types of folk who travel regularly or set their sights to.

But do we understand leisure?

Do we really get it?

“Leisure has had a bad press. For the puritan it is the source of vice; for the egalitarian a sign of privilege. The Marxist regards leisure as the unjust surplus, enjoyed by the few at the expense of the many. Nobody in a democracy is at ease with leisure, and almost every person, however little use he may have for his own time, will say that he works hard for a living – curious expression, when the real thing to work for is dying.” – R. Scruton

Maybe we should think on leisure just a little more.
