#112 -- Quitting

Have you ever quit something? A job, a sport, a school play, a relationship? How did it feel? Were you guilty? Flooded with relief and a powerful feeling of freedom? Do you maybe quit things too easily? Or do you never quit, even when you should? What does it mean to be a "quitter"?

NOTE: I had to redo Mr. Linky and the links were lost. Sorry! Please re-post below.

Quitting may be undecided when nature forces us to do it...we still do not know what happened with the "little house" there in the Chaitén

Marginally related, if indeed at all, to quitting this life we're all in. Nuala O'Faolain decided not to undergo chemotherapy to extend her life.
