Today our assignment for Jenny, at Off on my tangent blog, is the letter R.
Raconteur- teller of anecdotes.
A famous creator of anecdotes, or rather, raconteur of all time is,
Mark Twain- a most gregarious raconteur.
I Can Do Anything. I Just HAVE to Pick Myself Up Again!
Closer to home for me, is our very own beloved and famous raconteur, Garrison Keillor. Maybe you've heard of him before? Here and here.
Our love of stories is what keeps us human.
Don't Ever Stop Trying. We CAN do anything.
Something Important to Think About
The following was taken from, The 30 Best Inspiring Anecdotes of All Times.
If you have the time, inspire yourself by reading through this list here. You'll thank yourself if you do.
If I Had My Life to Live Over
If I had my life to live over, I'd dare to make more mistakes next time. I'd relax, I'd limber up.
I would be sillier than I've been this trip.
I would take fewer things seriously, take more chances, take more trips. I'd climb more mountains, and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I'd have fewer imaginary ones, day after day.
Oh, I've had my moments, and if I had it to do over again, I'd have more of them. I've been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot-water bottle, a raincoat, and a parachute.
If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than this trip. If I had my life to live over, I would start going barefoot earlier in the spring, and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances, I would ride more merry-go-rounds, I would pick more daisies. -Unknown.
No matter what , do what you love!
