Example: a friend of mine crashed a paraglider, was all broken up, spent months in the hospital, we though he wouldn’t make it.  He pulled thru but now his legs are stiff and he does well to walk.  He had been very athletic before.  He was the one who commented about his brain circuits being reprogrammed for other things.


I learned to seize every opportunity to not fly paragliders.
