Today is Five Minute Friday.
I've got five minutes to write on a given topic.
Then, I solemnly swear to post what I write without any re-thinking or re-writing.
Today's topic is
slow steps taken towards the edge are beautiful
little toes curled around the end of the cool metal are beautiful
wispy blond hairs tickling her neck while she musters up courage are beautiful
fingers pinching her nose and cheeks puffed, holding breath are beautiful
a brave jump into the turquoise water is beautiful
what is the most beautiful to me on this summer day,
is watching my daughter take her first jump off of a diving board,
is the reminder of the beauty in slowly stepping out and leaping into the unknown
