This is the last day for the 3 Day 3 Quotes Challenge. Again thanks to Erika Kind from Liechtenstein for inviting me to this challenge. https://erikakind.wordpress.com/blog/

My quote is from Albert Rothman’s memoir, A Brooklyn Odyssey, Travails and Joys of a Boy’s Early Life. It’s the last verse of his poem, “Elevated Train.”
“I stand on a see-saw
straddling the balance point
hard to move forward
fearful I will drop
if I move past the middle.”

Albert's book cover

How many of us feel like we are balancing in the middle instead of moving forward?
