We are almost there
All expectations intact
Yet we hesitate

We speak of a leap of faith but do we really have faith?
That may be why it is called a leap; we aren’t sure we’ll make it across the chasm. Without faith we wouldn’t even try to cross.

lol .. I was just thinking about this yesterday .. when I was out gardening . telling them that my skins are sagging and all kinds of old age symptoms are showing … how come you ‘guys’ are not here yet?
One level everyone else is an alien. Desire and intent battle fear, seek for trust and faith. In the end we have to accept uncertainty and be brave or give up.
And the burning question will always be “why?”…..
Well, as my friend Joan likes to say, “It passes the time.” 🙂
It’s a matter of never knowing if one is on the edge. Can we always see it to be sure. 😉
Frequently groping in the dark I fear.
That can be scary as Hell or what we think Hell is. My thought on that is Damned Scary & Hot Fiery Flames licking at our flesh. OUCH!
And yet some folk crave and pursue that situation. Go figure.
