A Few Life Experiences

A swim in shark-infested waters, a camel ride across the Egyptian

desert, parasailing over the Atlantic Ocean, a helicopter ride

over a waterfall into the jungles of Hawaii, a gondola tour around

the canals of Venice, a horseback ride through the Costa Rican

rainforest, kayaking among the sea caves of La Jolla, a Jeep excursion through Monument Valley, motorboat cruisaround the canals of Amsterdam, a late-night stroll through a rat-infested subway tunnel

in New York City, dancing with the locals in a Mississippi juke joint,

performing on stage at the Mercury Lounge and Viper Room backed

by members of Guns N’ Roses, and a high-impact blow to the face

with an aluminum baseball bat (accidentally).
