your happy place: walt disney world part I

Quick--what's your happy place? What does it sound like? What do you see? What do you smell? Go there for a moment. Close your eyes.

Let me guess. Was it this place?


If I close my eyes, this is where I am-- in front of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Actually, if I open my eyes this is where I am too. As I type this I am getting ready to shoot some segments at the New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom where the air smells like cotton candy and the sounds include laughter and music. There is something so comforting being in a place where just about everyone is at their happiest. It's a place to be a kid, to revel in the fact that you just spotted Stitch right over there and oh look there's Snow White! So, close your eyes again. Be there. You just feel good, right? OK, now go knock it out of the ballpark in your meeting. Go ahead. We'll meet back here later. Promise.
