"There is no such thing as Adventure, if you don't go out and seek it."

Does it count that it's an adventure just being inside my head some days? ;-)

Dan Mega said...

Where do I know this from? Or am I dreaming?

Colleen said...

Dawn-- to quote you, "Not so much." But then again, I can't get inside your head...so maybe?

Dan- I was contemplating my own life this morning when I had that personal thought. So if you actually heard this said some place else, I'd be curious to know. Then again, didn't some philosopher once say that there is no such thing as new thoughts, just differnent ways to say them?

You don't believe in serendipity?

You're minding your own business and suddently extraordinary events unfolded sending you into an adventure.

Oooo... Serendipity is one of my favorite words...

Does this mean you're back and feeling better? Hope so! :)

Colleen said...

Pin- Serendipity? Like when out of nowhere my brakes went out at the stoplight last Sunday? And I had to make an emergency stop to get my brake pads changed and was without a car and had to blow $200 dollars!!!! No thanks. I'd rather make my own adventure...:)

Holly- Thank you. I am feeeling much better than I was. I'm operating at about 80% capacity, soon to be 100%...then watch out world!

Dawn - It's my favorite word, too. Even more so when I found out it's origin, from the Persian fairy tale, "The Three Princes of Serendip".

Colleen - $200! Ouch! And that on top of being sick.

That was definitely NOT serendiptious since serendipty requires something fortunate.

Well, I wish for you serendipity and a quick recovery. :-)

Dan Mega said...

$200 to change brake pads?! Wow. I could done it for you for freeeee.
