In the 1993 film Groundhog Day, Phil, an unpleasant meteorologist, is condemned to relive the same day over and over again. The film asks the existential question of how one should live under those circumstances. It’s a good question. Here’s a related one: what would you choose to experience on a day or weekend that you would want to live through again and again?
Most likely such a weekend would include several fun experiences — though not necessarily peak once-in-a-lifetime experiences like jetting to Paris for a private dinner in the Louvre. I’d like to include maybe 2 runs in pretty locales, a fabulous brunch somewhere and a fabulous dinner somewhere else, a trip to an art museum, and possibly a concert of some variety. My favorite work of music is the Bach B-minor mass, but there are a lot of symphonies I enjoy as well. I totally enjoyed hearing Aretha Franklin live once too. Some fun activity with the kids would round out the weekend — a children’s museum or aquarium, perhaps. We went to the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, PA recently, and had quite a bit of fun.
What would an amazing — but doable — weekend look like for you? What would you have to do to make that happen? How much do you think it would cost? And what’s keeping you from doing it this weekend?
