Homer Simpson visits Machu Picchu in 2008.
When a stream of A-list celebrities began flocking to Machu Picchu (including Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Susan Sarandon, and Richard Gere), perhaps the famous of them all was the Simpson family. In the episode “Lost Verizon,” the family arrives at the lost city searching for Lisa; Marge falls asleep and receives a lecture on Inca history from a stone idol. Unlike most families that visit Peru from overseas, the Simpsons drive home.
You live in a busy world. You fold the laundry while keeping one eye on the kids and another on the television. You plan your day while listening to the radio and commuting to work, and then plan your weekend. But in the rush to accomplish necessary tasks, you may find yourself losing your connection with the present moment—missing out on what you’re doing and how you’re feeling. Did you notice whether you felt well-rested this morning or that forsythia is in bloom along your route to work?
Creativity is the answer.
Why do we need creativity? Ryan Le’s short video tells you why creativity is important.

If your family wants to enjoy a green lifestyle, you might find this enjoyable for your next family vacation. Instead of that family car trip, you might want to take a train vacation this summer. Trains are one of best examples of Eco-Friendly public transportation. Trains are able to move a large number of people at one time. Even though trains are full of people, they do not pollute as much as the same number of cars would to transport the same number of people.
