I stopped being afraid recently. Afraid of money, of people, of change. No, I wasn’t an introvert, but I was content. And then…

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, starring Ben Stiller, changed my life. If you haven’t seen it, do! There’s a scene in which Walter runs to a waiting helicopter and jumps on while David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” is playing, and that did it. I decided to jump on as many helicopters as I could.
