Writers Quote Wednesday – FREEDOM

25 May

Happy Wednesday everyone! The theme for this week’s quote is ‘Freedom’. Ron’s prompt could not have been better for me this week since I’m on vacation and I feel free! 😉 Today is the first time I’ve touched my laptop since Friday and it felt so freeing to unplug. I haven’t done that in too long. Although to be honest I have done a few social media entries on my iPhone but that has been while in the car (not driving) going from one place to another. I get restless in the car if I’m not driving. Anyway, it has been minimal. Now I have about 400 emails pending but I’m not stressing over that. I’ll deal with it later. I’ve become an expert at catching up. Today I wanted to post my Writers Quote Wednesday post, so I’ll get to it.

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.

~Jim Morrison

“Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.”

~Frank Herbert

“The vacation we often need is freedom from our own mind.”

~Jack Adam Weber

“I feel free, that’s what I want to feel every day of my life. Freedom.”

    Welcome back to Steveville!

    Now that I am out of the Tourist Triangle, I really do miss the experience. Working at one of the parks, I was just able to get a lot of perks that I really miss now. I saw your previous posts with the Horror Nights pictures and I used to get the full VIP experience into the houses.

    …Now back to the reality of being a visitor.

    Enjoy your stay!

      Yes! I’m in Orlando, Florida aka ‘Fantasy Land’. It’s so beautiful here. In the parks your inner child takes over and all your worries fly out the window and your mind is free. I’m enjoying every minute. Thank you!😀☀️

    Hey Vashti. Great post, and great quotes. I especially liked (loved) that one from Jim Morrison. Man, do I ever agree with him.
    Hope you’re having a great week.

    “The vacation we often need is freedom from our own mind.” So true! I have often wished I could get away from myself. I get on my own nerves pretty often lol

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your freedom 🙂

    What great quotes, Vashti! Good for you getting some vacation. That is true freedom! I did much the same thing, taking some time off to garden and visit with Wendy Anne Darling. It was time well spent! ❤
