A day or two or more ago, Ailsapm issued a challenge called On The Edge. I saved the email, thinking I would participate, thinking about what my choices would be. This evening as I sat on my front deck, my private space for letting my mind wander as I enjoy a glass of spirits – beer, wine, tea, whatever the mood might dictate – my mind started wandering and it found its way to edges.
I thought how often we are on the edge – of eternity, of discovering something new, of feeling lost, of finding our selves, of finding our joys, of adventure. How often I am on the edge of actually accomplishing some of those things on my list. Of letting my self find its way without my feeling that I need to control that way. Of feeling sadness, but yet peace. Of feeling aloneness, not in a bad way, and feeling togetherness with my friends. Of feeling my way into the future. Of feeling.
But this is a photo challenge, so I found my may to the computer and, after some discussion with my software program about exactly what I wanted and how it was what I want not what it thinks I want (damnation to software that decides to wield its power over we simple humans) that counts, I have selected some pictures that say “edge” to me.
What are your edges?
