So I’ve jumped again and again. And in jumping, I’ve learned why the squirrels so often do it; it’s fun. Oscar Schisgall

I looked up and saw a squirrel jump from one high tree to another. He appeared to be aiming for a limb so far out of reach that the leap looked like suicide. He missed – but landed, safe and unconcerned, on the branch several feet lower. Then he climbed to his goal and all was well.

Since then whenever I have to choose between risking a new venture or hanging back, I remember those crazy air-borne squirrels and think, “They’ve go to risk it if they don’t want to spend the rest of their lives in one tree.”

So I’ve jumped again and again. And in jumping, I’ve learned why the squirrels so often do it; it’s fun.
