Are You Ready For An Adventure?

Quotes and Notes #279, August 10

“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging and it’s very difficult to find anyone.’
‘I should think so—in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!’”—J.R.R.Tolkein, “The Hobbit”—

When you feel Ho-Hum, an adventure is just the thing!

When you feel Ho-Hum, an adventure is just the thing!

Adventures are important. They help us to leave our routine and close the door on boredom. Adventures help us to expand our philosophical horizons. It is nice to have a partner in an adventure but not totally necessary. Many of the best adventures may be enjoyed while we are totally alone.

Adventures don’t have to be elaborate or expensive—we can take a trip, visit a mountain top, or swim to the depths of the ocean—right there inside our punkin heads. In order to find yourself inside the greatest of adventures, you only need to turn your mind free and invent the happening. Sometimes you may wish to write the adventure while it is occurring. This adds suspense and realism.

You may enter the adventure with a smile knowing that in the end…
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
