Jack Kerouac

Six word Saturday

The 3 Day Quote Challenge #3

 “Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”― Jack Kerouac

It’s the last day of my 3 Day Quote challenge, but it’s also Saturday, and we all know what that means.  I’m sure lovely Annika won’t mind sharing me, just this once.  I’ve found her some beautiful photographs of the Dunajec Gorge in Poland to say thank you.

The rules of the challenge :

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote on 3 consecutive days.
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

I always loved the image of Jack Kerouac.  The spontaneity of his writing, the freedom of life on the open road.  I was desperate to be a part of it, to escape the everyday.  Mostly it was in my imagination.  I spent many, long years in an office.  So today, whenever I get the chance, I’m out there.  Never truly ‘On the Road’, but always aspiring.

My final nominees.  Take part if you’d like, or if you have the time :

Lovely Gilly at Lucid Gypsy

Brian at Bushboy’s World

And Patti of Pilotfish

If you’ve not been nominated and are itching to give this a go, please do.  Not all of the nominees are able to take part.  And please don’t forget your Six Words for Debbie.

3 Days, 3 Quotes- Day 2

When I was much younger I had a bit of a yen for Kerouac, and the lifestyle.  Even today, ‘On the Road’ resonates, for a lady with a restless streak.

Another day dawns

Another adventure begins, in a place that I love.

I hope that it may long continue.

The Happy Traveler kindly nominated me for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes challenge.  I have one more quote to come tomorrow.  If any of you would like to join in with some quotes of your own, please do feel free.  Meantime, have a happy Friday!
