(Video Link HERE.) Holton Rower sent us this video of professional stunt people doing their thing.

As we watched with baited breath, we realized we knew the feeling well: of taking a risk once we’ve done everything we can to master what we are doing, but are nevertheless without a net. There are so many unknowns being in the world; we’re ALL always walking on SOME edge…

Why take risks? we wonder.

We choose some of our challenges (for the very personal meaning they hold), and others we just get, a part of life, to make of what we will. We’re reminded of Sue Austin, deep-sea diving in her wheelchair in order to “re-envision the familiar.”

“To re-envision the familiar” is very good reason for taking on any challenge.
