I love that statement!
I do as well, Mitch. It's something to aim for. :)
Wise words, protagonist!
I love that quote! I think it's possible to be the heroine of your own life -- but only if you are true to yourself. I can imagine people who deny themselves in order to live up to the standards of someone else, but who still think of themselves as the heroine of their own lives.
You speak the truth, Mr. Sunstone! For some, being the heroine must mean that they surround themselves with drama or someone else's idea of the good life. Pitfalls to avoid, for sure.
This is off-topic, but I noticed on the right-hand column of your blog that you're reading a Philip K. Dick novel. Cool! Is this the first book you've read of his, or are you a fan?I recently read "The Divine Invasion" (which I loved) and "VALIS" (which I thought was mediocre).
I've read many of his short stories but this is the first of his novels that I've read. This is shameful, because I love sci-fi and he is a master, and also because I'm a long-time fan of Blade Runner. I'll add The Divine Invasion to my list! I'm on a crazy sci-fi kick right now with both books and movies.Off-topic is never off limits!
I'm more the cocaine of my life.
Grundy, it's so true--you can't spell "heroine" without "heroin." Nor can you spell "Hermione" without it...who is a heroine...who casts spells...I'm getting confused... :)Thanks for dropping by and commenting! I love your blog's title. :)
I keep trying!Pearl
