Stepping into the unknown, in this moment and all the ones to follow, is what we do, willingly or not. What was, is no longer. The world is here and now, full of possibilities, and each moment we stand, poised on the brink of discovery, facing a new chance to learn, or create, or reach out. Our most important choice, our only real choice, is what we do with this precious gift as it is offered to us, and offered to us again. And again.
