Shadow of the Sword

This is for one of my special girlfriends… I am sure when she reads it, she will get the message…
Virginia Wolf writes… ‘Across the broad continent of a woman’s life falls the shadow of a sword.’ On one side of that sword, she said, there lies convention and tradition and order, where all is correct. But on the other side of that sword, if you’re crazy enough to cross it and choose a life that does not follow convention, ‘all is confusion.’ Nothing follows a regular course. Her argument was that the crossing of the shadow of that sword may bring a more interesting existence to a woman, but you can bet it will be more perilous.

Now that’s some good advice there.

  1. So meaningful. Great advice….I feel I am crazy enough to cross it and make life more exciting but I am much more sensitive about taking care of others conventions, traditions and orders. and risk lies in both the sides 😉
