Sero Sed Serio – By @mazzystar81

Sero Sed Serio
I’ve always been a late starter. I do arrive at the game, just sometimes a little late. I am a Kerr and the Kerr clans motto is ‘Sero Sed Serio’ meaning ‘Late But In Earnest’ so it’s in my blood. I therefore have faith that in my earnest I will at some point this term glide into the familiarity and ease with which Marc has often described as ‘hitting your stride.’ I’m not there yet and that’s ok.
I just need to let go of the spin I get into. Marc gave us each a bookmark with a quote specific to us written upon it. My quote was “Afraid to even look at the sky the birds of a cage do seldom fly.” I do spin out a little in my cage but am I afraid to look at the sky? At first I interpreted my quote as The bird that is too scared to fly (succeed) never leaves the cage and I made my reflection slide accordingly. Damn right I don’t want to leave my cage – flying can be scary and if you fly too high people just want shoot you down. I photoshopped a dead bird onto a tiny coffin whilst me as a different bird flapped around with a power drill adding more bolts to the door of my cage. I will stay in my little cage thank you because if I do begin to fly and I fall to the ground – then what will I do? I will have no where left to go.
