This came into my inbox: 2015 October Platform Challenge (link). I almost deleted it. Almost. Then the voice on my left shoulder (we’ll call him Muninn) cawed, “You have been wanting to work on this skill as long as I can remember.” Not to be outdone, the voice on my right shoulder, (let’s just say he’s named Huginn) cackled, “I really think you should do this.”
So sleeves up, I am committed to this month of daily challenges! Here goes…
2015 October Platform Challenge: Day 22 – Make 3 New Connections
The instructions for today are: “Make 3 New Connections”
Huginn and Muninn give me annoying little nudges. Mustering a tone dripping with more sarcasm than any raven should be able to achieve Huginn says, “Spread your wings, fledgling, you can fly.”
“You just want to laugh when I splat face-first in the mud down there,” I gesture vaguely down to the ground that seems awfully far away.
“Every hatchling falls at some point, but the true fliers are the ones who get up, ruffle the dirt from their feathers, and try again,” Muninn says.
“You did not just attempt to mollify me with a raven-skewed platitude!” I casually shout back over my shoulder. I am inching toward the edge of the branch.
“It’s what we do, we’re mythic.”
I snort. Spread my arms… and leap!
