i like the challenge of pushing my spacial awareness. I hate the first attempt at anything. But once spun and survived, I’m good. I’m happy to go again. Harder, longer, faster, smoother and more chocolatey.
I think I assess risk well. I break things down and figure out what I have to do to get things done. Ok, I might still not be able to do things, but the process will have been analysed… and if I still can’t figure something out, then I’m clearly missing something. So I move on.
I like this approach, its safe. I don’t like getting hurt, it reminds me of my mortality, it reminds me that by body is weaker than my mind and it reminds me that I’ve skipped a step in the destruction manual.
I watch people that do things much more complex than me, and I think ‘jesus’s underpants, wft?’ etc. Sometimes I forget and think, ‘that’s doable’ .. and sometimes I catch myself thinking… ‘jeeez.. half the planet freaks out at just going upside down, go easy on yourself old man, you’re not doing too bad’.
