Random Quote Tuesday

"Of all the things I am not very good at, living in the real world is perhaps the most outstanding. I am constantly filled with wonder at the number of things that other people do without any evident difficulty that are pretty much beyond me."

  2. Right. And then look at what Bill Bryson does - his book on hiking the Appalachian Trail is one of my all time favorites......

    1. I know, JT. I love him--have read everything he's written. Special place in my heart for the hiking book (A Walk In The Woods) and his childhood memoir Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid. I laughed sooooo hard reading Thunderbolt that some of my family thought I was going to need medical intervention. I get a little giddy just thinking about it. ;)
