Cliff Jumping

How many times have you seen a scene in a film where the main character is being chased toward a cliff of some kind and he or she is left with the option of certain death by facing the enemy, or taking a leap that looks just as hopeless? Plenty, right? And every time you see it, you yell at the screen, "Jump! Jump!"

We all have moments like these in our lives. They're just not as easy to see. However, we choose to give up instead of taking the leap when chances are slim to none. If we jump at least there's a chance, right? No matter how small the chance of surviving appears to the film character, he or she always jumps! And we watch, cheering all the while. Yet, how many times do we choose to do nothing, instead of taking the leap? We may be breathing, but when we quit, we quit living.

Keep a look out for opportunities to leap. Cheer your friends to jump as well, when you see them peering over the edge of the cliff. "Jump! Jump!"

What happened to "Coming Out" Parties?

My desire is not to find a husband, but to become a magnificent wife. I do not announce my desire to marry as a way to chase after men, but as a way to make known that I am open to suitors and ready for marriage. I do not wish for you to tell me about any eligible young bachelors that might interest me, but please tell every bachelor you know about me, so he can take action! I do not wish to feminize my husband by seeking after him. I will wait for him to seek after me as a man ought.

"I'm coming out so you'd better get this party started!" -Pink

Scrivere...

I'd like to be more purposeful in my blogging. For a while, my blog has been titled "Scrivere!", which means "Write!" in Italian. However, after reviewing the content of the blog, I've found that it consists more of visual images than of words. I've put the task of re-naming the blog on hold for now, hoping that just the right one will come along. Ta ta for now!
