Light & Dark

January 22, 2021

I was out walking when I looked down and realized I had crossed the line and stepped from the light to the darkness.

Too late I realized my mistake. Anxious, I stopped mid-stride and wondered what to do. How do I fix this? I thought cutting my right foot off at the ankle seemed a drastic solution. Plus the sharpest thing I had on  my person was my keys.

Helluva a day to leave my fingernail clipper at home, I thought.

Maybe so, maybe not.

Sometimes you wonder how you got yourself int a certain situation which is exactly what I did. I stood and wondered.

I was downright stumped.

I stood there wondering for a fairly long time.

Some time had passed and when I looked down again I realized the sun had moved across the sky and had taken the shadow with it. I was no longer one foot on the dark side. I was 100% all of me in the light. I took this to be a good sign.

I smiled and put my left foot forward and continued walking.

    Amazing how often that approach works. Or in other words: Don’t just do something…stand there!
    Nice write, Mike!
