Epic: : extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope
I believe that there is much in the world that is epic. There are a lot of people that I think could be called epic. There are a lot of situations that could be deemed epic. There are a lot of places that are no doubt epic.
Take a look around today. What do you see that would qualify as epic? In light of recent events I would have to say that I find some human behavior to be epic. The law enforcement officer who took 2 gallons of milk to a family during the Boston “shelter in place” for their toddler. The truckers who take pets cross country to their new owners. My friend, Bernie, who writes over at One Mixed Bag who participated in World Book Night 2013 (which I knew nothing about until she posted about it–next year I hope to participate!) You can read her story here. How about Billy Ray Harris, the homeless man, who found a diamond ring that had dropped in his change cup and returned it??? He is now reunited with his family as a result of that news piece.
I am on a quest. To find epic stories. To talk to epic people. To push the envelope and maybe even write about epic things that have escaped my realm of consciousness. Can you help me??? I would love to hear your stories. If you know of someone or something please do not hesitate to let me know. I would love to hear all about it.
Oh and by the way—-the picture at the top of this post is of epic mayflies that come yearly to Lakeside, Ohio–usually when we are there for a week in June. Enlarge the picture by clicking on it if you dare.
