Further on freefalling...

I am not quite so excited about going fearward as Bobby Bacon but I think there is wisdom to it. I also hope to experience some of the exhilaration Marianne mentioned without having to actually jump out of a plane. I am much too cowardly for that. Brian was very brave. I wish I had known him.

I don't think Brian was brave. Bob may have a different perspective and others that knew him. I think he was a risk-taker, loved the adrenaline. It was part of his DNA, imprinted into the basic building block that was Brian. He saw things through different eyes, different lens, processed them in a different way. Deconstructed and then put things back together differently than the rest of us.

Brian was restless, a seeker. I don't know if he ever really found home, but he had the courage and insight to look for it. Perhaps that is the mystic in him, so I guess in that way he was brave. The mystic searches for that missing piece inside of himself, that place. (Interesting that I used the present tense there... wrote "that IS the mystic in him.")

There is middle ground in fearward, I think. I'd rather canoe on a small calm lake searching the unknow than bungee jump. Plus pace. I want to take my time and reflect rather than rush. Fearward at my own pace
