On the Precipice
In fact, for myself lateral thinking is such an integral part of my thought process that the usual options often don't occur to me, frequently to the general frustration of my very logical husband. And so it seemed to be for second daughter when she suddenly cried out in frustration that she didn't actually see that she needed to go to university at all! A brilliant plan had taken root in her mind and that was that she would go to London where first daughter's Godfather lived. You see The GodFather is a composer and has many artistic connections, ergo he knows many well-known photographers and surely she could study on the job so to speak with them.
So the option second daughter chose was in fact to step off the precipice, but not in the hope of being caught but of flying! Sometimes we are given choices in life that seem impossibly difficult at the time, but in fact what we're being offered is a second chance at the life we want for ourselves.
