saw Oprah on TV this morning and I liked this quote. I think it embodies the true wealth that we are striving for. My definition of real freedom comes from the movie 'Beloved,' where the character Sethe that I played says, 'Freedom is waking up in the morning and deciding for yourself what to do with the day.' Imagine that. I must admit MOST of my days I can decide what and when I need to do stuff. I can't quite do nothing without it being noticed but if I really want to swan off and do something for myself I can arrange it without too much hassle. Husband is not quite at that level yet. He still needs to work (although a lot of that is because he does not like to relinquish control . ) What is your take on freedom?
