Trapezes - Real and Metaphorical

If you haven't seen Patti Digh's documentation of her Leap Day activity, you might want to visit the stories from and read all the stories there.

Basically, Patti decided that she was going to confront her fear of heights by doing something she always wanted to do with someone she'd always admired.  More about that here.  On February 29, 2012, she DID IT! She learned how to trapeze and faced her fear!

There are metaphorical trapezes, too. Today, without knowing that I was going to do it, I walked out onto a platform, caught a metaphorical trapeze coming towards me.  I couldn't do anything else - I grabbed onto it, I took a deep breath. Then, the leap. I didn't know if there was a net or if there was, I didn't know how strong it was. The metaphorical net turned out to be made of Spiderman strength webbing - it was soft, it was strong, and it will last a long time.

I am blessed. That is all.
