“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.”

“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher

“When you have come to the edge of all the light you have
And step into the darkness of the unknown
Believe that one of the two will happen to you

Or you’ll be taught how to fly!”
