Come to the edge

I've been a "color inside the lines" kind of person most of my life. This was one of the first things I read as the new year began:

"Come to the edge."
"We can't. We're afraid."
"Come to the edge."
"We can't. We will fall."
"Come to the edge."
And they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.
--Guillaume Apollinaire

In 2010, I want to explore--and expand--the boundaries of personal creativity, going to the edge and jumping off myself, or if need be, being pushed by someone else...

...with a few "edge notes" to help me along the way:

Love that prose! It so fits my new year too! I'm jumping off the edge of spiritual creativity. 2010 is the year of my "garden". Watch my blog! Love, Janice
