A Leap Of Faith


She always knew the road could end.

Rickety throughout, it got almost impassable in places. It was a folly, she’d been told. A fool’s errand. Doomed to fail.

The way had never been fully completed, quite possibly never fully traversed. So many had abandoned it that there would be no rest stops, no soft places to lay one’s head.

Indeed, each step confirmed the lack of maintenance.

Still, it was her path to take, her journey to attempt.

And when she faced the maw, the utter void of all support, she knew.

She could turn back.

Or she could leap.

  1. Na’ama Y’karah,

    Which do you choose? The lady or the tiger. I like the way you don’t tell me what she’s facing only her quandary. I’m reminded of a quote from a fellow writer in a workshop when she told another, “In the end it’s your decision, darlin’.”

  2. ooooooooooo, you got me with this one…. so excellently woven this story was. The leap indeed. I could picture the journey, too. Ohhh, now you’ve done it… you’ve got my muse to thinking and that always leads to a freakish crazy write fest… Well, there is a very serious winter storm coming in…sure to shut the “world” down here. Hmmmm… paper – check. pens-check. pencils for backup – check. popcorn & snacks – check. Okay, I’m all set!
