  1. oh yes! I did that! On my birthday one year. I always tell people it was the most fun I’ve ever had with my clothes on!

  2. I meant “Chute”…sheesh

    This is great, Lisa.

    Very cool that you made the jump. Fantastic metaphors throughout this.

    Hope you’re having a great day. 🙂

    I went skydiving right after my divorce too! Best feeling in the world!

    I don’t know that I’ll ever be able to skydive due to a back fusion I have – but even if I could, the thought of the free fall terrified me. I thought that it would feel like falling and that I would get horribly sick and vomit all over my instructor and the poor saps on the earth below me (can you imagine just minding your own business and then getting caught in a vomit shower?) I’m interested to hear that there is no sensation of falling – just the wind (which I could manage). I loved the analogy of how sky diving compares to divorce – hopefully I’m nearing the ground, about to make my landing with as little jarring as possible.

    • Fingers crossed for your gentle landing:)

      I have a friend who also has back fusion. Her doctor cleared her for indoor skydiving but not the real thing. Might be an option for you.

      The idea of a vomit shower from above is pretty terrifying! Now you have me thinking twice about walking around in areas where there are skydivers!
