Most people who get involved with me know that my life is really like a roller coaster. I’ve always liked roller coasters. I’m not completely sure why. The truth is they actually scare the hell out of me. I think it’s because I like the thrill of life. I’m one of those people who says yes immediately and then gets on and screams the whole time. I really do like the feeling. It’s a rare bit of excitement and a great release.
A few months ago one of my kids told me that they felt like life is a roller coaster, too. I was momentarily stunned. I knew exactly what that feeling was like and I know it can be terrifying. It seems like it’s either roller coaster or stuck.
Who’s controlling the speed of this thing?
