I stood on the edge, the water sparkling 30 feet below. “You can do it. Don’t psych yourself out.” But I already had. Then I heard the count.
3! — “I don’t know if I can do it.”
2! — “Would it really be bad not to jump?”
Jump! — My feet left the edge, I was absolutely free, my arms moving through nothing and my feet doing the same, then a plunge deep into the warm blue waters, and my head breaking the surface a moment later.
Friends help you take the plunge.
And Tuesday was awesome.
