Lack of Control
Working with the Army, I got to blow things up. I got to work with tons of heavy equipment.
I've sky dived numerous times ...
These events, while fun have been sporadic and spread out over the years.
Now that I am a father, most of my dare-devil moments are much more considered. He needs me around for a long time.
Being in control is definitely comforting for me as a father to Patrick, but I am coming to realize that doing my best to be in control is doing it in such a way that he feels the influence of the control, even when I am not there.
