The Line

A child draws a line in the sand – don’t cross it, keep your toes away. We’re taught by nursery rhymes not to step on sidewalk lines; to colour between the lines. Those lines divide us, but these earthen lines bring us together. We converge on the same paths, to build the same paths. We walk the same lines daily – toe the line, work for the bottom line. It’s a fine line between right and wrong, but wide enough to travel on. We choose our own paths, hoping that down the line, we will remember these lines.
