"When I was a boy I fell out of a tree but I managed just to grab a branch. I hung there for a long time, terrified. The silence and the pain in my arms. And the pounding in my ears.
And then I fell.
I don't remember what happened when I hit the ground.
All I can remember now is the agony of holding on..
And the wonderful feeling...
The wonderful feeling of letting go."
- from the movie, The Wisdom of Crocodiles
