Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
It's a good thing to have all the props pulled out from under us occasionally. It gives us some sense of what is rock under our feet, and what is sand.
~ Madeleine L'Engle
Down to the beach where the slow waves thunder -
The green curls over and the white falls under -
Boom! Boom! Boom! On the sun-bright sand....
And there I'd say to myself as I looked so lazily down at the sea,
There's nobody else in the world and the world was made for me.
~A A Milne
What does sailing and the ocean have to do with the letter Q? you ask. Why Q stands for quotes, of course, of which there are 3! Cold and snow and ice prevail in my world at present. I am ready to dream and explore somewhere warm. I'm ready to remove the props and discover rock. I'm ready to sail from the safe harbor and perceive how the world was made for for me.
This is a fun weekly meme, under the direction of Jenny Matlock. This week, our letter is "Q." Have some fun and come join HERE. This is a great way to exercise your creative muscles AND you will be amazed at all the bloggy goodness to be found!
