Dean Potter died the other day.
I suppose that some people would look at the type of activities he did and think that he had a death wish.
Watch that first video…he didn’t have a death wish.
Maybe what he had was a “life wish”….and death hung around in the background while he was doing some heavy living.
I guess that death is hanging around in the background for all of us, though.
Nothing too morbid about that, really.
It’s just the way things roll.
Lately, I feel like I cheated something when I can get out of the grocery store without some kind of meltdown.
And….that’s just me.
Forget the meltdowns that the babies might have.
I guess that we all have our ways of pushing limits.
No one would want to watch a video of me trying to calm the kids down in Walmart, though.
Dean Potter was a great athlete….out in the world….having fun …and pushing limits.
I don’t think I’ve heard yet what really happened on that base jumping trip.
I don’t know if anybody knows what happened yet.
Man….this dude “ate life”, didn’t he?
