RTW: Washokey Winds

I never do Road Trip Wednesday (sponsored by YA highway-linky in the sidebar) because I get Wednesdays 13 hours ahead of you guys. And usually, by the time it rolls around, I've already posted.

But today's RTW is about something crazy you've done. And you know I'm always involved where there's crazy.

Because I often have to ask myself what I do that ISN'T crazy.

I moved to another hemisphere to a country whose language I didn't speak on a whim.
I joined the Coast Guard mostly because the opportunity was there.
I routinely dance, duckwalk or speedwalk across crosswalks.
I am a complete clown at least 2 days of the week, at elementary school.

But mostly:
I write.

I agree with Emilia Plater who said that's about the craziest thing you can do.

Sharing your deepest thoughts and feelings, knowing that people might laugh or misunderstand or shoot you down?

What could be crazier than that?

You've got quite a point, there!

You are so right! And yeah, I think the whole free spirited way you live life counts as crazy -- in the best way imaginable!

I love that you've moved around the world and still spend time writing. I think living free and crazy is great!

I think I have too many crazy examples to share here.lol I feel that my life needs the crazy sometimes to keep from being too boring but you're right. Writing is the craziest.

One of the reasons I love reading your blog is because of all the unique things you do. And it's cool to get to know someone who lives so far away.

I really admire your spontaneity and risk-taking. I'm not sure if I could ever move to a foreign country on a whim. That's awesome! And you're right, writing is for crazy people! Mwahhhhh...

Thanks guys!

Clarissa, I think that might just be the name of my memoir: Free and Crazy!
