Looking for a Quote

In a surprising turn of events, I was nominated to participate in the Quote Challenge.
The rules of the challenge are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post a quote each day for three consecutive days.
3. Nominate three bloggers each day to do the same.
This reminds me of the heyday of Xanga where there were multiple games, challenges, contests and mayhem going on at all times. It was a wonderful time. I accept the challenge!

A big thank-you and a shout out to swtspontaneous for the nomination. Go check out this site and leave a nice comment (you might even feel compelled to follow!)

My quote is as follows:
“Reading is one form of escape. Running for your life is another.” – Lemony Snicket A Series of Unfortunate Events.
As is my modus operandi I want to give you an explanation and some insight to the reason for selecting this quote. First I’ve been binge watching the TV show “A Series of Unfortunate Events” and although at first I was just curious, I find that I’m now completely enthralled with the story! Secondly I can seriously relate to this quote. As a child I spent countless hours immersed in a book and living in the far away and imaginary worlds contained therein. As an adult I find that the joy of escaping into another dimension is still available but the reality of the adult world limits my time to escape. It is also much more likely that I’ll have to “take to my heels” if I want to avoid the very real unpleasantness of adult consequences. And even then I’m not as swift as I used to be! I suppose I have a well developed “fight or flight” response. Unfortunately sometimes you just can’t outrun that falling piano!

As for my nominations, well, I suppose I’ll give it a try. I nominate YOU (this is not the same as a falling piano – really it isn’t):

    1. Thanks! I have to really watch myself when picking up a book – I sometimes can’t put it down and end up sleep deprived on a week day! The last one caused me to read until 3:30 AM and I had to get up at 6:00 AM -I’m too old for that kind of shenanigans!
