I was talking to a friend about some unexpected changes in my life. Fears, unrealized expectations, unfulfilled dreams, anxiety about the future — things that keep one awake at night.
After several glasses of Chianti she gave me some sage advice. “You’re standing on the edge of a precipice and you know you have to jump. Don’t be afraid. Just raise your arms, close your eyes and float down.”
I love the imagery of that leap of faith but I also remember Wile E. Coyote.
