As the tides of life come upon you
And the waves upset your boat
Don't waste your tears on what might have been...
Just lay on your back and float!

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears the beat of a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears, however measured or far away." -- Henry David Thoreau

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours." --Henry David Thoreau

Stay safe and stay inspired.

When I got to work today I found out one of my friends on the emergency response team here at work died in an accident yesterday. The other team member that told me, finished telling me about the accident and said "Well Matt, none of us are going to get out of here alive." I don't know if he made this quote up or if its just the first time I have heard it but I figured it would be a nice addition here.:(



"No one can live your life except you, No one can live my life except me. You are responsible, I am responsible. But what is our life? What is our death?

We usually think of our life as fifty, sixty years, maybe the most around one hundred years. I once read that there are about thirty three hundred people who are more than one hundred years olf, the oldest being 112 years. (What are people doing living such long lives?). Dogen Zenji said that living a long life without awareness is almost a crime. On the contrary, he emphasized that that even if you live one day with a clear understanding of what life is , the value of that one day is equal to many, many years of living without awareness"

That seems like the wording of "A Clockwork Orange," the book.

Here's a quote I liked from some guy named Chris Stokely:
"Money is like oxygen - without enough you die, and beyond a certain point it doesn't really add that much more to your quality of life."

And one from Steve Morrell:
"Put on your gear and die like a man!"

Now we are mixed company, the following saying is weakened:
"Put on your gear and die like a ... person!"

For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.

-Charles Bukowski

BASE is a spiritual experience: on every edge I realize I'm only seconds from the possibility of meeting my Maker. I never got that in church!

"Goddess, if it be Thy will, keep me safe on this jump; and if that's NOT your will, well, I'll see you soon! 3-2-1-c'ya!"

Peace,
Karen

this is a text i sent to heather, a pilot freind of mine on a night when our entire group of pilots, jumpers, and aircraft were assembled at the same airport.

"Heather, we have an 8 place Jump plane, An aerobatic chase plane, A helicopter, 2 Ultralights, 4 Wingsuits, 5 Skydiving rigs, 4 Base rigs, 12 cameras, an abandond airport and the rest of this beautiful full moon night. What would you like to do?"

Heather was just learning to Skydive, previously she had been our designated jump pilot, (it sucks she and scoot started jumping, now we have to alternate:S)

needless to say, we had a great night. On one load, All craft and rigs were airborn individualy at the same time (except the ultralights)
I really wish CCDs could work better in low light.

They stuck me in an institution,
said it was the only solution,
to give me the needed, professional help
to protect me from the enemy
