Many of you know that Len and I are avid bicyclists. One of our favorite bicycle paths in Crystal Lake, Illinois had a heavily trafficked roadway to cross. A clear case of “the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.”
Over time and tragedy the city decided to build a bicycle bridge that takes peddlers above the traffic. They found that the safest distance between two points—at least in this case—is a curved line: up and over!
There are times when taking risks is not a good idea. There are, however, times when a little risk taking is healthy.
When was the last time you took a risk?
“Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing.”
