Sprawled in the mud. A night’s broken sleep. A day’s pressing demands.

The cicadas cackle anyway. Leaves still rustle in a passing breeze.

Life goes on.

Everyone riding dragons gets thrown. The true riders get back up.

cool evening

a place to make

a stand

  1. True riders climb back on indeed, it’s all a matter of falling and then having the courage to get back on again. Beautifully and wonderfully said, Frank. ❤ Making a stand is one of the strongest things we could do to build our confidence and face our fears.

  2. Frank, I like your battling dragons of one kind or another. It’s important to know where to make your stand. A cool evening after a dragon’s breath day sounds like a good place to make one.
