In order to keep a balanced life -- especially
when walking tightropes from the dank
basements of boredom to a higher living --
leave your mark behind for others to follow.
Then put one foot in front of the other, and
never look back or down. Keep your head
held high, and reach for the stars.

Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words- For the G-Man

Nice flash but I wouldn't call it fiction I would call it a great way of living. Hi Lydia - Tag you are a lucky duck. It is a get to know you game. The rules are on my blog

P.S. It is a little time consuming but it is fun so I hope you can play.
