This picture made me think of the day my blind poodle Harry cornered a huge opossum in the backyard. What you can’t see, can’t hurt you, right? 😉 I managed to grab Harry in time. The very miffed, but unharmed, opossum trundled off under the gap in the fence. Back in the house, Harry bounced and pranced around as proud as can be, wanting his cookie reward for being the valiant hunter/protector. If he could talk, I’m sure he was saying, “Wow, Mom, that was fun! Best toy ever! Let’s out out and do that again!”
Oh, those infamous last words: “This looks easy.” or “This should be fun.” or “How hard could it be?”
This definitely resonates with a few projects I’m working on right now.
How about you?

Yep, I definitely come down on the side of “What you don’t know can’t hurt ya,”, and “Ignorance is bliss”, when it comes to the courage department. As a writer, in every project I tackle, it works better when I just leap into the creative process, (sometimes blindly), before letting the naysayers and knowledgable ones tell me why my idea will never work. That’s how I got published the first time. I had NO idea of how hard it was, or I probably wouldn’t have tried. Sooner or later, I might dive into the pool before looking to see if there’s water (ouch), but so far so good.
Hi Christine. Thanks for visiting. Yes, true, I think some of my best writing comes from those “leaping” moments, too.
