You step out alone on a ledge

Wait. Wait. Wait. Everyone is in a hurry. Everyone has to wait. Sip some water. Tap the fingers. Look around. And, wait.

It was all part of some hunger games context. Zero sum game. Everyone looking out for themselves. She was tired of that perspective. But what was she to do? You step out alone on a ledge.

  2. For some reason this post, in particular the title, makes me think of the old Infocom text adventure games I used to play on my Commodore 64. “It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.”


  3. This hurry hurry hurry reminds me of the Stephen Sondheim lyrics ” Another hundred people just got off of the train and are looking at us , who got off of the bus. A city of strangers…”


  4. I hope this is not going to be your last post. If this were April 1, I would be a lot less worried. But whether you really mean it, or this is just a fictitious head game. Keep in mind that there are others to live life for, and who need you to live life for them. Step away from the ledge, life may suck, but things will be all right in the long run.
