I have been an LJ member for about 6 months now, admiring the projects of those so gifted and occasionally posting my humble offerings. Working on my latest project, I realized, we are all part of a chain of a living barrel of monkeys.
When we are new, the top, the bar that is raised, seems so very high, impossible to climb or reach up to. But, when we lift up our hand (our paw?) we don’t touch empty air, but a hand above us that connects us to the chain as we reach our own hand to those below.
Those on the top attempt the impossible, while those below attempt what was once impossible for themselves, all following the same vision, dream, achieving what we once told ourselves couldn’t be done.
Australia, America, Great Britain, Canada, Africa, Europe, Asia no continent too far, no timezone too distant, for us to connect to this chain.
I am proud to be a monkey in a barrel of monkeys.
My thanks to those above and below for putting your hand in mine.
