    “sometimes You Just Have To Take The Leap And Build Your Wings On The Way Down.” ― Kobi Yamada

    Might take that leap this year...and move from all I have ever known to the opposite side of the states where I face the unknown. The worries set in when I know how established and successful I am here, but for love I will risk it all.

    The Risks Poem

    To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk appearing sentimental. To reach for another is to risk involvement. To expose your ideas, your dreams, before a crowd is to risk their loss. To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying. To...

    Anything worth having in life is worth hard work, commitment, and risk.  If you aren't willing to put these things into the great loves of your life are they really worth having?

    But You're Only Risking Apathy...

    Fear is all in the mind. If you want something bad enough, you will risk everything. To me, not caring about yourself, others and your goals, leads to agonising death of spirit.....and who wants to suffer that? Nobody. So, whatever it is, GO FOR IT!
