Cliff Notes

Looking at her, nobody would ever have said she lived life on the edge. Or ever had. She wasn't adventurous, boisterous or even curious.

In fact, you'd be hard pressed to come up with anything to say about her. She was the sort that blended into the shadows. It wouldn't be wrong to say that you'd never think of her.

Her side of the story though, was ... well, it was an entirely different story.

She felt she did live on the edge. On the edge of a very deep crag. And with every little thing that transpired, the temptation to find out what was at the end of that drop, up close and in person, only got stronger.

She thought of the deep end as her destination. Home.

But one day she looked up. At the vast sky and the far spreading mountains with their grass and trees and sweet smelling flowers. And felt the caress of a gentle breeze.

'Of course, it makes sense', she thought. 'Perspective '

Everybody lives life on the edge ... all that's different is whether you look up or down.

  2. Wow! I couldn't agree more. I have thought of this so many times. Every time I have had a discussion on marriage vs singledom. Every time someone has told me how much I have changed since college days (and I notice a tinge of a not very positive emotion). Perspective. That's what it is. Who said someone who wants a home and children and those general warm and fuzzy things in life, can't be adventurous. It is about striking a balance. Maybe. Just maybe. I have :-)

    Lovely piece of writing, this.

  5. Perspective. Absolutely.

    Many a times, we do tend to forget it in spite of how obvious it is.

    Life would be mush easier, if we always respect the fact.

    Very well written DD. As always, I mist add :)

    wah! so very well said. but occasional looking "down" helps, if only to appreciate the "up" more.
