push corner bottom close edge choose 
bend reverse turn peak limit sleep

Not to be pushed into a corner
Nor to be kicked down the bottom
Not to be too close to the edge
But choose to stay around the bend

Take quick action in case of a reversal
To turn around and rise up the peak

To forge a line of thinking
where sky is the limit
One can well then sleep 
soundly at night

Solstice Edition at Real Toads where
the theme is 'changing direction'


  1. Onward and upward is the only direction to take!

    Very encouraging words for this time of year.

  2. A quick turn around due to will sure allows one to sleep without need for a pill.

  3. Indeed. While there is an Ahead to be had, pushing forward while keeping from falling is the way to go.

    Happiest Winter Holidays, Hank!

  4. Well crafted!

    Merry Christmas and may next year be filled with blessings.

  5. Growth is the climb upward, indeed, but it often is complicated by twists and reversals. Great metaphor, Hank.

  6. It is great to feel that way and wonderful inspiration here. Thanks, Hank .k.

  7. Reminds me of a trip we had to the Grand Canyon.
    If one wants to go to and stay at the bottom they have to make plans at least a year in advance.

    Also we need to not bow to peer pressure, be prepared and that old saying that moderation is the key.

    Best to you and yours in the New Year!

  8. Great inspiration Hank, good to read.

  9. Hank, sorry I'm so late responding - been working very long hours...

    I like your philosophical take on the challenge. Happy new year, and thanks for adding your voice ~
