Day 1 of 3 Quote Challenge


Thank you to Angela of Fuck MS fame for the nomination.  Her’s was among the first blogs I discovered when I started mine, and I’ve always enjoyed her frankness and willingness to bare her soul, not to mention her writing. I’m not the most technically savvy person in the world, otherwise I’d drop her a link to her site right here. So I will list it the old fashioned way and encourage you to give it a look:

It was hard to come up with three quotes, and if I were to do this next week I might have come up with different ones. The quotes that follow have always resonated with me for a variety of different reasons, and here they are:

Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud – Maya Angelou

Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans – John Lennon

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step – Lao Tzu

My next obligation is to nominate three more victims, I mean bloggers, to join in the fun and games.

The first is the great Billy Mac, aka Superman. I love his writing, his point of view, and the fact he isn’t afraid to poke fun at himself, something we have in common.  Plus, he’s been feeling a little down lately and I thought this might give him something to occupy his thoughts, perk him up, or piss him off. Either one is good enough for me:

Nominee number two is Tom, author of the blog Tom Being Tom. I’m not sure how I stumbled across Tom. It was probably through either Bill or Grace, but I love his style and the topics he writes about. His last topic:    definitely confirmed that we are cut from a different cloth.

My final nominee is Susan:  Susan turned me onto poetry, and, for those of you who read my blog,  had the uncanny ability to shame me into writing a poem. Her poetry sings, and she writes fine prose too. What drew me to Susan however is her story, but if you want to know more about that you’ll either have to read her blog, or the guest post she authored on mine several weeks ago.

So there you have it. I hope I passed the audition

  1. Thanks for thinking of me, my friend. Challenge, of course, accepted!

    And even though we’re cut from a different cloth, I’m a “Paul guy,” too. 😉

    So, just for clarification, can I get a set of rules for this? Just post one quote a day? Talk about what it means to me? Select another person or three? Appreciate the insight, and thanks again for the challenge!

    1. The Rules
      1. Thank the person who nominated you (whether you do this every day is up to you)
      2. One Quote
      3. Explain what it means to you
      4. Nominate 3 bloggers to join in the fun

      So you do this on 3 consecutive days, one quote each day, 3 nominations each day
