Giving Credit Where It’s Due

              You can’t test courage cautiously.
  –Annie Dillard

Luck’s had a lot to do with it

being in that certain place

saying yes instead of no

taking on the odd job

putting myself out there

twisting fate into fulfillment

faking it till I caught onto

making it look good

learning to love

letting myself be loved

weaving words

making music

exacting education from

challenging opportunities

giving credit where it was due

growing gardens

fixing food

stepping out instead of back

fighting fear with fearlessness

celebrating the whole business of living

realizing through it all

Luck’s had a lot to do with it.
