I am fascinated by limits. I don’t believe in limitations. As Nike says, i like to think that ”nothing is impossible”. But I am also realistic, or at least I try to be realistic: there are many things that I cannot do. Or shouldn’t even try. Usually I get along pretty well with this dilemma, but sometimes I watch video’s on YouTube that make me wish that I had developed different skills. Especially when I see people do ”Parcours”, as it often called, I feel a desire to experience these moves from within my own body. But I don’t really have a great talent for such moves, and hey, let’s face it, I am way too old for this stuff.

As a kid I loved to do stuf like this (not that I came anywhere close to these guys ;-) but two times a made a nasty fall which almost cost my life and from that moment even “koppeltje duikelen” causes a panic attac.
Of course I could try to do something about this disorder, but like you said: I’m too old too and I haven’t even time left for all the other things in life that I want to do
