The 'brink' - kind of a complicated place to be. There are two definitions of the 'brink' and both seem applicable at this very moment. I feel as though I am standing at the edge of a cliff, and if I step too close I will slip and fall, or dive into whatever it is I am supposed to begin.
Yep, it feels as though I am on the verge of something. Something. Some THING. Since I can't yet wrap my head, hands and heart around what that thing is, I will meditate, okay sleep, on a the idea of brink-dom by co-opting the wisdom of folks with more street cred that I.
From the mouths of the greats to my subconscious:
"If I drive myself to the brink of my ability, then I don't get stale or bored.
" - Dean Koontz
"If I had my way, if I was lucky enough, if I could be
on the brink my entire life - that great sense of expectation and
excitement without the disappointment - that would be the perfect state." - Cate Blanchett
"One keeps forgetting old age up to the very brink of the grave." - Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Ready or not, the brink is here and it will not be denied.
