“Being out on the edge, with everything at risk, is where you learn and grow the most.” Jim Whittaker

We live On The Edge

Does anyone live in the middle,
the place where nothing is and
yet everything is so between it all,
or do people live in extremis,
a polarity of ends and differences,
where everything is opposed to itself,
a kind of Dante's Inferno, 
or perhaps, because there are so 
many thin places and nothing is real,
we live on the edge of things,
a protest against the mundane
and all that is dull.
