Curve Balls and Parachutes

When playing the game of life, it is always good to be prepared for the unexpected curve ball... or even the expected one, because they don't stop to ask if you are ready when they come at you. Sometimes I wish that the game was more predictable; but I think that I would probably find that pretty boring.

The last couple of days have been a challenging combination of questioning, doubt, reassurance, introspective theorizing about intriguing possibilities, and making a last minute inspection to ensure that my parachute was packed properly before deciding that there really wasn't a good reason to jump into the unknown.
