A couple of random things have popped up in stuff I’ve read over the last few days too, which have given me food for thought. One was by a friend of mine about getting over a fear of his:
The other was a quote in a book about a couple who retired on a yacht – he wanted to but she didn’t, due mainly to fear of the unknown. Her daughters reminded her of this quote from a favourite book:
‘Come to the edge’, he said,
She said: ‘I am afraid.’
‘Come to the edge,’ he said.
He pushed her… And she flew.
I’m doing it for Stu, but mostly I’m doing it for myself.
So – looks like I’m sailing to Hawaii.
