Frommer’s Tourism Guide: You’ve got the wrong idea about Asheville

Asheville River Arts District Warehouse Studios

Asheville has been making top 10 lists for years, driving tourists to our fair city by the droves. As much as the locals complain about tourist season, people understand that tourism dollars are a crucial part of Asheville's annual budget. It always makes us feel warm fuzzes inside seeing the city we love top another list. When the reasons for being added to the list are grossly misleading, however, it can make those warm fuzzies turn into seeds of rage.

79860.213392

I started this series to get people thinking about how much more love would be available if we practiced some simple principles and skills of loving. If you missed that post, you can read it here. Today’s myth? That Love is expensive.  We believe it's something we earn.  We have the idea that we must be good to be  loveable. Often, we shy away from love, because the price tag looks too high.  We have the idea that romantic love will require sacrifices of who we really are. And often it does.

And then there is all the disappointment, and fingerpointing, and ultimately, we amputate that person from our lives, because the love wasn’t perfect.
