The edge of your world

Less than a thousand years ago, some idiot climbed into a leaky boat and sailed off toward the edge where the sky met the water. His friends pleaded with him not to go, that he would fall off the face of the Earth. But he went. And he returned.

Eighteen years ago, The Shawshank Redemption was released that had what I consider the best line ever. “I’ve convinced you to come this far. I’m hoping you’re willing to go just a littler bit further.”

Where is the edge of your world? Did you ever take a step beyond that horizon?
