Make That Leap

Years ago, when ideas swirled like a raging eddy current in my brain, and I was enamored with the notion of being a writer but not actually putting pen to paper (finger to keyboard?), my friend Anna gave me this postcard:

"Leaping the Chasm at Stand Rock, Wisconsin Dells 1887"
by Henry Hamilton Bennett
(photo credit here)

Having it on the cork board above my desk, it inspires me in so many other ways than just getting down to the task of writing. May you be blessed, Anna.

Today, be fearless.

Defy logic.

Make that metaphysical leap.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PS: I know that some of you either visit the Dells or live near there. Please note that The Baroness is in no way encouraging you to physically attempt this (my lawyer told me to include this addendum).

But if you do, and make it - let me know...

I have never seen that. But I love it already. What fearless spirit.

Go for it girl! i am so hoping that the postcard is photoshopped! If not, that person is loony.

i got the book today! Ahhhhhhhhhh! That is me screaming with excitement. i am in the middle of Twilight right now, but it is up next on my must read list.

Countess MPM: I hadn't seen it either. I could look at it for hours!

Countess iPost: Did they have Photoshop in 1887? No.

But they did have loonies.

Please let me know what you think of the book, when you get 'round to it.

love the message. love the postcard. love the loonies.

loonies make the world go 'round. and vice-versa, I'm sure.

either way, I wish I had that kind of courage sometimes.
