Getting to the Edge

“I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.” — Kurt Vonnegut

Keeping ourselves to the middle, keeps us safe. We surround and protect ourselves in the middle of the majority. It allows us to stay hidden, unexposed. Out on the edge there’s more light and more exposure. It’s revealing and there’s more room for growth. There’s space and possibility.

Yet the edge can be uncomfortable.

Sometimes you need to feel uncomfortable before you move.
