Our mortality, and the risks we take in living, are linked together. A risk taker, for example one of these young men who go “tombstoning” off a rocky arch located offshore in the popular English beauty spot of Durdle Door, will, most likely, discover what “mortality” means after it is too late. But someone who minimises life’s risks, for example, by only crossing a main road at a pedestrian crossing, will have to wait a bit longer before they cross the great divide.
I have put together a short video entitled, “The Risk of Life”, and uploaded it to YouTube. here’s the link if you have time to watch it. Comments and responses welcome.
