I've made something of a career of going out on a limb. Sure, my career is short and I often wonder if it will be like Edna's candle. Is it better to burn bright or burn long? Obviously, there's no right answer to that. I think it's in my personality to burn bright, burn hard, and occasionally, burn myself. In some cases, I learn very quickly and others, seemingly never. I'll do anything for a friend and an enemy has no worse fear. Luckily, I think I have about equal measures of both and my friends are the ones I'd rather have on my side.
I like having this limb that I can go out on. I like the rush of the wind in my face as I realize just how far out here I've climbed and sometimes, I can feel the branch shaking. Maybe it's about to crack, but usually, when I glance back, it's just my friends following me out there. Eventually, I'm sure I'll be the one that falls, but it's going to be one hell of a show.
