Written as a gift for Michael and Sara Wood on the occasion of their wedding on June 24, 2007, Edge of the World is inspired by the poem and beautiful watercolor print "True Things" by StoryPeople creator Brian Andreas (www.storypeople.com). This poem poignantly captures the essence of two people starting their lives together and looking forward to what the future holds.
