Ok, so it should be obvious, and it is to a lot of people, but we are all on this planet for positive reasons. Yet a lot of people spend a large proportion of their life doing something they don't necessarily like doing, to survive. Is this right?

So Deepthi's great Idea about  waiting in Airports sparked off a thought on 'waiting, traveling, spare time put to good use' Then I thought TUBES!

Tanya commented on Repurpose Civic Landscaping as a Senior Activity

I like the idea of keeping the older generations active, and 'on task' with something - it is so important for people to feel useful. And also, for people to keep going, and to maintain purpose in their life. It is why we are here, is it not? Keeping passions alive. If there are more ways for people to keep active with their passions, literally until the day they die, ideally also contributing to society then it is purely win win - think of the fishermen in Asian countries, and the elderly members of tribes. Age is wisdom. We need to keep brains alive, and close the circle in this cycle. A few links to advocate this:

Tanya commented on A PENNY'S THOUGHT ON THE TUBE!!

hmmmm - I like this - Well Oester cards tend to be what a lot of people use now - but tickets are also used - definite possiblitly to integrate though - thanks for that thought :)

I like this! It also makes me think of messages in a bottle - could people post their ideas, thoughts, dreams into the balloons somehow? Then all of the balloons together represent peoples thought bubbles in a beautifully visual way! I also like the idea of balloons, as they bring color and light!
