Go 4 It

What if all those greats we learn about in history, science and the arts sat on their thumbs wondering? If they stood frozen with fear of failure would we be driving cars, chatting online with far-flung friends or sitting in the dark at night?

It’s almost as if I’m being hit over the head with the same message, today. Two of my favorites in the blogging world posted some good ones about seizing opportunities. We all know some only present themselves once. The moment to fulfill the success to its greatest potential might not return a second time.

So, without further delay, here are the two posts that grabbed my attention this morning.

The Only Way to Guarantee Failure is Never to Try – Dances with Chaos

If You Want Something, Ask – She Takes on the World

Good luck in pursuing your dreams, today.

Twilight Hum

Two busy bodies finally lay in peaceful slumber. Another day of learning, playing with friends and testing boundaries has concluded.

A view from my back patio brings clarity and wonder. Those dusky blues and purples introduce an infinity beyond my comprehension.

In the distance is the hum of busy people still riding among the hustle of life. Like twilight it transitions to primitive beats from frogs, crickets, birds, bats and other nighttime creatures.

The Carolans Irish Cream in my coffee tops off my start toward the end. Darkness and stillness of night is eminent. It is time to turn off structured thought and let dreams take over for a spell.
