One Step Backward Taken - the theraputic value of fear
The week before I took a break to move I gave an address on a poem by Robert Frost called One Step Backward Taken. My computer died and took the file with it. Fortunately I had a hard copy and, re-reading it, it seems to me worth offering you a pdf of it. You can find it here.
But you have added to this idea very well with your image of the man standing on a cliff, and showing how fear and gratitude are connected. Thanks.
