One Small Step


One Small Step

The distance between here and there is one small step. Tread carefully. There's many a slip.

Manip Academy #12: Creating a night sky scene, by adoreluna



Do not look for me.

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am in the small star that shines at night.

I am in the stories, whenever they are remembered;

And, wherever they are told. I am still all that I was.

Only one small step, out of reach-

-Paraphrased from "Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep," a poem written in 1932 by Mary Elizabeth Frye.


Although the origin of the poem was disputed until late in her life, Mary Frye's authorship was confirmed in 1998 after research by Abigail Van Buren.[1]

There's many a slip, from the old proverb.

In The
Iliad, Odyssey, and tales of The  Argonauts, three heroes offer toasts, boasting that they’ve surivived and eluded fate, only to slip and fall, before the end of the story.
