Crossing the Falls

I was venting to my mom tonight about all that I have going on right now.  All that there is to do.  That I was losing sight of how lucky I am right now.  And my mum, in all her wisdom, brought up the story she had heard on the news of the man who just walked a tightrope across Niagara Falls. Talk about perspective.

The thing is he just talked about how he didn't focus on the crossing. Only on the end. The result. The goal. What it was all - the angst, the worry, the nerves - for.  And she's so right. But of course she is. She's my mum. And I am so lucky these days. So lucky.
