In yesterday’s post, I wrote that one fall is a life-changer for me; structurally, I am “a house of cards.” All true but in retrospect, a bit self-absorbed.
A fall is a life-changer for anyone. Descent is descent. 😉 In a nanosecond, life is a tumble—its gait broken—harm is imminent.
Life at its most vibrant, a complete change-up in a nanosecond.
A plunge into scary places–all fears fly forth–vulnerability on public display, in lights even (we are so certain this is true).
Who is not a house of cards? Mine is not a monopoly on falling.
In that moment, I am at my most vulnerable. It is what I do after I land that is the life-changer. That is my fresh deck.
The moment is all we ever have, and it is enough. Its lack and fragility only apparent to us it seems.
