The Rest of the Story.....

"When you come to the edge of all the light you know,
and you are about to step off in the darkness of the unknown,
faith is knowing one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid to stand on,
or you will be taught how to fly"
by Patrick Overton

What a wonderful saying. I have had this
saying printed out with a flower with no
title. It is taped to my computer room door.

It was sent to me about 3 years ago.
It has brought me a lot of peace of mind.
At the time I got it ... it was given credit to
a woman. So when I passed it on, I, too
added the woman's name.

Today, thru another blog, where they had
used it, because I had passed it on to them,
a commenter gave the rest of the story.

It seems that this poem has been passed on
for several years, giving credit to the woman.
I won't say her name, as I don't want to add to
it. But the commenter did contact the woman,
who did tell of the mistake. And what an
embarrassment, it has been to her. So after
getting the correct name, I went to his site and
thanked him for the many years of peace he
has given with the poem. And that I will correct
my passing the wrong name on, like others.

Also I got to see several other books and things
he has to offer. Very nice site. Here is the

And that is the Rest of the Story.

Cis - this is very nice. I too have had this poem for awhile and it has given me great peace. Thanks for the update and correction. We can only save one starfish at a time.
