Living Near The Edge

Living Near The Edge

April Fools, 2016

I now live in Denver and I am sitting in a hip coffee shop looking out at a foreign streetscape that holds different opportunities than I am accustomed to. I notice that everything is different yet this new episode has a familiar quality. My adventurous spirit has guided me to uncharted territory before, and I am OK with the discomfort. I believe that it is possible to be a stranger in my own land and still feel at home. My sister pointed out that living in the city, for me, is like being an expat in my own country. Touché.

The information highway is ever-expanding and there seems to be no limit to the material available on the internet.  My friends and family often send me links to articles they think will pique my interest, and I even still get an occasional newspaper article in the mail from my dad.

It is in this moment time can seem endless, yet we move at a fast clip because our dreams are still in front and we are moving towards them. It’s considered the prime of life, and it may be the pinnacle of our career, an athletic pursuit, or reaching a peak in sexual drive and personal edge. Whatever form it takes, our energy is focused and we are driven by an inner desire to climb high.

To a child all the world is new, exciting and full of wonder. They enthusiastically try, fail and try again! The rewards here are great as the child naturally gains more personal freedom through self-discovery. Children remind me of the excitement and innate curiosity to be found within each new experience. So why is it that this inherent sense of fascination fades with time? 

When is the last time you took a risk? What did you notice?
