  • People say they regret the things they don't do more than the things they do. I agree most of the time. I have stood on the edges of cliffs, trestles and other metaphorical heights and despite fear jumped anyway. In part to feel alive and in part to not regret. Its a good rule of thumb as most of the time the things we fear are irrational and improbable. Knowing that, having been reared on the instructional lyrics of Van Halen and always having made myself jump, i still stood on the edge of this small bridge and couldn't take the first step. I will always remember not jumping. Drew though, he jumped.
