The Edge

Trolltunga, Norway
 “the troll’s tongue” – a ledge 2,300 feet above the lake Ringedalsvatnet 
in Odda in Hordaland county, Norway

There’s a wonderful fellow by the name of Anu Garg who shares a word a day with the world.  I get it via email but it also appears as a web page.  There are often fun weekly themes, like this week’s “words that have all five vowels in order!”

Over the years, I’ve noticed that while I enjoy reading about the words, many days the best part is an extra that Anu tosses in at the bottom.  They’re often tied to the date or slyly comment on an issue of interest.  I read it.  And then I read it again.  And then I think about it and how it perfectly sums up an aspect of my strange and wonderful life.  And then… I know I have to share it.  Here is today’s entry:

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center. -Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., writer (11 Nov 1922-2007)
