Rush

Wingsuit

Adrenaline rush

Healthy helping

Legit high

No limits

Sky falls

and beyond

Dizzying heights

Unbelievable depths

Pinnacle peaks

Highlights

Ski pond

Bottomless pit

Fast and furious

freaks

Brain freeze

Internal jog:

stomach to chest

heart to throat

Strip for dragging

Strip-tease

Competition nil

Repetition swell

Test yourself

That’s all she wrote

Pure desire

high-wire

Trial by fire

Reach a goal

set it higher

Accomplish the task

at last… at last

Don’t give a damn

when called a liar

Done for self

not accolades

Awards are faux pax

medals degrade

standard set

when self-made

    I like this, JW, and couldn’t agree more. Why do anything only for the sake of recognition…do it for yourself, for your life’s passion.

      Yes, my friend, and without worrying about the opinions of others who don’t even care about you.

        So true…I believe we have spoken of this before. I’ll be dancing in the rain until I’m no longer able, and hope you will be too. 🙂 And if anyone doesn’t wish to see a feisty old lady dancing, they can look the other way. 😀

        Ha ha… that’s exactly what I’m talking about. No one has a right to tell us how to enjoy our lives, just because it doesn’t fit their ideas.

        Agreed. It’s too bad more people can’t get past other’s opinions. Sometimes there’s a legitimate reason, but oftentimes not.

        I agree, and too many judgmental attitudes create undo obstacles for those without the maturity to pass it off.

        My daddy lived by the quote: “Judge not least ye be judged.” I try to live my life that way, though I do slip up on occasion.
        I’m off to bed now. Good night and sweet dreams, my wonderful friend.

        Smart man, your father. Good night and sweet dreams to you as well, Pretty Lady.
