Leap and the net will appear... maybe
Hi writers! I was looking for a lovely parachuting photo to accompany this post and I found this instead, captioned: "Training the first paratroopers, 1940" and I thought, dang, how scary to be the FIRST paratroopers! How's that for having no guarantee you won't fail? I thought it was a pretty appropriate image for our theme. Of course we have no guarantee, but the point is, those things you really really would do, fantasies aside, what you REALLY would make of your life if you had that guarantee... they're just as vital and important with all the real risks and fears of failure. I loved reading everyone's responses (if you haven't posted yours yet, please leave us a comment throughout the week and we'll grab it). There were serious, soul-searching answers and mighty silly ones, and everything in between. From religion, fear of flying and singing out loud, to inventing a pizza topping that will bring about world peace! Running for office, baking a 14-layer cake, time traveling, working from home. falling in love, writing a novel, joining the Peace Corps, carpentry, art school, travel, learning languages, helping people, adopting babies, being lazy, being loud, being heard... Wonderful, wonderful, the ways dreams spilled out for all to see. We're thrilled with this first scribble, and hope you'll all be back next week! Thank you all!
