The farther you…

The farther you go…the harder it is to return. The world has many edges and it’s easy to fall off.

  1. Happy birthday, Anderson Cooper! The silver-haired journalist jump-started his career by forging a press pass and filing reports from Myanmar. He turns 46 years old today. 🙂

  2. i have always enjoyed Anderson. He has quite the fascinating background – his mom is the designer Gloria Vanderbilt. The above quote is very interesting – I am sure just a coincidental reference – but his brother committed suicide by jumping off a penthouse terrace.

    • How awful about his brother. 😦
      Like the quote above, this one is also from his book, Dispatches from the Edge: A Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival: “But in truth, the world is constantly shifting: shape and size, location in space. It’s got edges and chasms, too many to count. They open up, close, reappear somewhere else. Geologists nay have mapped out the planet’s tectonic plates -hidden shelves of rock that grind, one against the other, forming mountains, creating continents – but they can’t plot the fault lines that run through our heads, divide out hearts.
      The map of the world is always changing; sometimes it happens overnight. All it takes is the blink of an eye, the squeeze of a trigger, a sudden gust of wind. Wake up and your life is perched on a precipice; fall asleep, it swallows you whole”
      ― Anderson Cooper,

  3. Anderson Cooper is another favorite of mine!!
