In the Middle Lands

That next step looks pretty risky.

It will stretch your resources,

extend your limbs,

test your stamina.

You feel small,



But if you never take that step,

you’ll stay rooted there

in the Middle Lands,

and never know

    The Middle Lands have that illusion of safety attached, but it IS an illusion, it’s not safe–and frankly, it gets old after awhile.

      Thank you! It takes a lot of courage to get where we need to go, doesn’t it? Life is more about risk and challenge than stagnation and comfort, I think. A difficult truth!

    That is so true. It is scary to take that step though

    True. Sometimes we just gotta’ take that leap o’ faith!

    This is the cutest thing I’ve seen lately (except for Ellie, of course, hehe). I just wanna hug and play with that little ball of fur, like 24/7 πŸ™‚

    Hugs and kisses, lovely Melody

      Thank you Petro! I have been so missing your beautiful self swimming around in cyber-space. I look forward to every smile! This little ball of fur is in danger of wrapping all of us around its little tail, for sure. πŸ™‚

    Then it’s time to take courage and be reborn.
