The edge

Driving down the road yesterday, I heard a familiar internal command, "put on some music and relax." That is my cue that I am approaching an experience that is stress inducing. For as long as I can remember, music has been an effective coping skill to reduce my nerves; music always helps me confront my edge. There were many edges this week for me, one after another, experiences that were just on the border of my comfort zone and that in turn provoked nervousness.
