Of Comets and Mavericks

copyright -Janet Webb

We walk in the path of trailblazers of all kinds. Copying the actions of the first mammal to walk on its hind legs to copying the latest fashion trend filling our shopping carts with  $200 brand new ripped jeans.

Some scientists say we blazed our way into this earth on the backs of comets- rocks of ice – that brought the water we are made of and can’t live without.

Yet we hesitate to walk in an untrodden path… Hesitate to support the maverick..not knowing that one day that the trail these mavericks blaze could become the road frequently traveled.
