come to the edge

2013 note: See?  It's blogs and beautiful ideas like this that I need to reread, and reread, and REREAD!!!

come to the edge

Current mood:contemplative
i have a friend who buys used books from a library in her neighborhood and then passes them along to me. it's a cheap (meaning: FREE) way to read a lot of good books, and i also end up reading things that i normally wouldn't have bought or picked for myself such as hume cronyn's autobiography! i'm not really familiar with his work, but he included this poem by christopher logue twice in his book, and i fell in love with it.

Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It's too high!
So they came
and he pushed

and they flew.

he also included this quote from the director of one of his plays, sir tyrone (tony) guthrie. it's about theatre:
It is to show mankind to himself, and thereby to show to man, GOD's image.

i'm glad she passed this book along to me....and that i actually READ it. these two things alone made it worth it. thanks hume. rest in peace.
