I nearly took a tumble down a flight of stairs today, and had it happened, it would have been a nasty fall indeed.

After my heart stopped racing, the non-event got me thinking about the incredible precariousness of existence, and how amazing it is, really, that tragedy doesn't strike us daily. After all, we take a risk each time we cross the street, or take the stairs, or get behind the wheel of a carů yet thankfully, most of us are able to go about the business of everyday life with little thought, and no adverse consequence.

Most of us.
