The wonder of it all is in the moment of liftoff. It is the great exhalation and shove into what we do not know or can predict, a conscious action leading to outcomes unknown. Suddenly the eventualities of life are distorted - gravity and death elongate and contract, opposing motions causing distinct discomfort as grips fail and weight shifts. These are the sensations of life.
We hold on and move upwards or come down and rethink our next move.
