The decision to freefall 13,000 feet out of a plane came after a family vote of "what to do tomorrow" while vacationing in Hawaii. My five children voted on skydiving. Even the little one voted for skydiving, because she wanted to see if I had the guts to do it.
"Living" can be mundanely defined as your day-to-day existence, or "living" can become your own personal art. It is the art of living that conjures up a person who accumulates a life of saying yes instead of no. I think of the art of good living as adventure for the masses.
