On a clear day you can see forever.
Perhaps, it just depends on what you want to see.
What I first see, looking at this view, is a horizon that is so far away, I could not reach it.
Is that like the one goal in life that I have?
Or is it time to change that goal and try to reach one that is attainable?
What sacrifice does that entail?
Does it come to pass that you must make sacrifices in order to get what you want?
It’s one if those perennial questions that has an answer, mostly, that no one wants to hear, or wants to be told.
Everything has a price. It’s whether you want to pay it.
This subject, this situation, is manna from heaven for a writer.
So, for instance…
I stood on the edge of the cliff and took in the view, which on any given day could be either magnificent or like being in hell.
Today, while being majestic, it was also like being in hell.
I didn’t think I’d last 2. Yet here I was, having survived the worst that could be thrown at me.
The question was, did I want to go back, did I want the life that was being offered?
Or was it time to simply walk away?
That, of course, is another story, and you’ll have to wait just a little longer to find out.
