Getting “half way there” isn’t exactly a wellspring of positive thinking:
We are also fed with the mixed metaphorical message
to not switch our horses in “midstream” once we do.
Me being forever the optimist:
I’ve always seen it as a glass half full …
Or in other words,
“Halfway there is all downhill from here.”
This particular Halfway Creek is a backdoor into the Big Cypress Swamp.
In the Days Before Roads, watermen dubbed it as such in recognition of its location at the halfway point between Everglades City and Turner River …
Or at least that’s one theory.
