As I sit here, on the edge of the universe, with my feet dangling and my heart beating, time stands still. I glance over my shoulder and see the stars. These are familiar, full of laughter and music and love. Memories of comfort and warmth. I look forward and see this huge unknown, waiting for me to take the jump; for indeed, I am at a crossroad of sorts, a great eternal choice that calls me, beckons me to step out into an uncharted universe bursting with light and energy.
And with my heart beating, I jump.
