And All Fall Down!

Someone just reminded me that “down” is where we begin. And when we are finished climbing, we navigate downward from the summit so we can begin the next amazing climb of a different sort.

All of us.

It’s not failure! There is major hope involved in being down. It’s the beginning of achievement!

Getting to the highest we can go is, well, where we get to navigate heading back down! Does our accomplishment become a shrug? Hardly!

The achievement is the ultimate accomplishment. The prize!

Now what?

What does a creature do next?

A creature has to get back down off the winners stand, and move on.

This is not a failure! This is the path!

A first step is the beginning of life. What happens next?

A new day. Up is headed down and Down is heading up!

Gravity has sent a Spring!
