run while you can

Few incentives left for the cynic.

Some seven stories up. Lapham Peak State Park. Delafield, WI. Summer 2010.

As a girl, I often heard these idioms that I eventually classified as overused:

Reach for the stars. Follow your heart. Dream big. You can do anything.

As an aging body, I sneer at the individuals that call fantasy ‘reality.’

Early to bed. Early to rise. Makes a man sputter nothing but lies.

Chaotically chasing carrots when the real root is elsewhere.
