the Infinite Monkey speaks: on adventure

Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…


Staying home doesn’t create memories.  Adventures do.

  1. Thanks fir sharing this reminder from Mind Margins to seek adventure. You are both inspirations. I am slogging through some legal details right now and need to recapture adventure in my life!

    • It’s too easy to get bogged down with the less pleasant things we have to deal with, isn’t it! I practically have had to force myself to have adventures. But the more I do, the more I want.

  2. Thanks so much for the shout out! I have to be honest and admit that so far this year I’ve failed miserably at finding adventures, but now that it’s spring I think they must be just around the corner. I better start looking. Don’t want to miss anything!

    • Well, I’ll have to admit that the adventures I’m finding are along the lines of going to the movies and a concert and visiting my friends. But when you start at zero, then everything is an adventure!

      • That’s what it’s all about. Adventures can be very small. Anything that gets you out of the house and out of your routine can become an adventure. A lot of times the adventure happens of its own accord.

        • That’s what I meant to tell you, is that you are gardening – I would certainly call that an adventure! All many of us do is think about gardening. But your gardening blog is inspiring me to get out and at least plant some flowers or something.

  3. I am not much for adventure these days. I was a wild child and had enough “adventures” to last a life time. These days I am a tame old dame.

    I saw that you put something of mine on pintrest. How sweet you are my girl. I am sort of afraid to get on there. Had to get off Facebook. Computers are addictive…but maybe it would be an adventure of sorts.. :~)

    • I just recently started with the whole Pinterest thing, and I’m taking it slow. I’m hardly ever on Facebook anymore, and I just don’t have time to do all of the “fun” stuff the internet has to offer. That Thankful post of yours is from a long, long time ago, but I always remembered it! I wasn’t sure if people could tell that they had something pinned or not.

      • I think we all go back and forth between spending a little time on the Internet so we can share the fun things we’re doing in the real world and then spending too much time on the Internet so we never do anything fun in the real world.

        March 30, 2012
        • That’s certainly true for me; I’m on a less internet phase right now, and more real world. My resolutions are keeping me busy, too!

          I hope your back is feeling better!!

  4. Wise words. Now if I will just get up and out. 🙂

    March 31, 2012
    • Haha – that’s the hardest part! A body at rest tends to stay at rest, right?
