#33 - "I don't want to be a passenger in my own life."

The prompt this week is a quote: "I don't want to be a passenger in my own life." (Diane Ackerman)

Examine that any way you want. And as a little bonus if you feel like it: what's a favorite quote of yours?

A few ground rules, as more and more new scribblers find their way here:
1) Please write about the prompt.
2) Please write and post something new, rather than linking back to an old post that has to do with the promt.
3) Please leave your permalink. See how other people have done it.

Thanks everyone! And some exciting news: Meg's wonderful boyfriend Mark has been building us a real website as a surprise! Some of you already found if by mistake. We hope to have it fully functional soon, complete with automatic linking and other fun bells and whistles. Thanks Mark!!!

Do you know where I can find this quotation in its original context? Talk about the right quotation for the right person. I'm working on my weekly podcast. This week's episode is entitled When Life Really Sucks. When it is done, it will be posted at http://www.RealLifeSpirituality.com/ I hope to write on this topic more directly when I'm finished. Wow!

Thanks Mark. I'm so excited about the webpage.

And again, I am really liking this exercise.

I'll send a prompt soon.
