Living on the edge

Life-purpose acquires meaning on the edge. Life takes all the trouble to build a bridge, and takes one close to deep waters. It then, lets you decide. One cannot swim ashore, nor find a boat to save dear life. The choice is all yours.

One can invent equipment to measure the depth, or enjoy the drama from the side-lines. One can write a story about the whale that carried a human on its back to the other end, or the sharks waiting for the fall.

The only pathway that life does not provide is going back, unlike this constructed structure.
