For me, the 'gap' is bitterness, cynicism and powerlessness.
I want to be old and have laugh crinkles at the corners of eyes that still sparkle.
I want my mouth to be permanently turned up, defying gravity and age.
I want to love well, finish well, have compassion, be nurturing, be open hearted, hospitable, kind, tender hearted, good willed, sweet tempered, valiant, enthused, brave, courageous, fearless, bold, forgiving, merciful, graceful, resilient.
"Minding the gap" isn't focusing on what not to do......it is being aware that there is potential harm and purposefully choosing the firm footing of either the train or the platform, which for me are faith and choice.
I'm steppin' up and out, playing the movie forward ~ wanting to hear that, 'Well done, good and faithful servant" because I took my maker up on his offer of unlimited help and power......
