I’m starting a blog challenge!  See info below and if you have suggestions on quotes or how to make this more awesome please leave thoughts in the comments.

you should give up looking for lost cats and start

searching for your shadow.” –

from Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

  1. Hmmm….I like this one. Very tempting. Mind is spinning, but that could be from the vodka.

  2. Fun idea! (And interesting quote.) I haven’t seen a quote-based challenge yet, so I hope this gets some attention and participation.
