life is an experience to be grabbed with both hands and lived fully.
Just look at the upsurge in adventure tourism and daredevil pursuits, such as parkour.
Many of us would settle for the occasional excitement amidst the routine of an ordinary life.
But we all have the capacity to live fully, consciously, attentively, gratefully,
in each and every moment,
and in that living, we become fully human, fully alive.
