Vail Vision June 29, 2006

Summertime, and the living is easy.

The great physicist Albert Einstein was once traveling from Princeton on a train when the conductor came down the aisle to punch his train ticket. Einstein reached in his vest pocket, but couldn't find his ticket, so he reached into his other pockets. It wasn't there, so he looked in his briefcase, then he looked in the seat by him. But he just couldn't find his ticket. The conductor said, "Dr. Einstein, we all know who you are. I'm sure you bought a ticket. Don't worry about it." Einstein nodded appreciatively.

The conductor continued down the aisle punching tickets. As he was ready to move to the next car, he turned around and saw the great physicist down on his hands and knees, still looking for his ticket. The conductor rushed back and said, "Dr. Einstein, don't worry, I know who you are. You don't need a ticket. I'm sure you bought one." Einstein looked at him and said, "Young man, I too, know who I am and that I bought a ticket. What I don't know is where I'm going."

Summer is a time to slow down a bit, but with all the vacation and travel plans, many are busier this time of year. May God give you peace as you plan and safety for your travel.
