There seems to be an element of risk

in everyday living these days.

However, it is not every day that one gets…

to pat a cheetah…

…although she sowed some sign

of not being happy with one traveller.

Standing under a 6 ton 30-year-old elephant

has some risk involved.

The Whistler-Blackcomb Mountains

Peak2Peak Gondola Ride

has travellers sailing at a minimum

of 1,400 feet above ground

with only a piece of wire holding things together.

Admittedly a rather larger piece of wire.


The riskiest part of any flight

is take off and landing.



And flying over Alaska’s wilds

one always hopes the risk of

engine failure is minimal.

      • There is indeed risk in every moment. Not everyone chooses the risks of exploration. To the explorers, this seems not so much a risk, I suppose.

        I know I’ve often received messages from folks praising my apparent courage for extended travel. It seems more a necessity for me than a risk. The greater danger, it seems, is in standing still. Change has generally been something I’ve welcomed.

        That said, there are times I’ve struggled. (This last journey proved to be challenging in ways I’ve not experienced before.) So, I understand a little better those who see a greater risk in stepping outside the realm of the known.
