i would completely disagree with you on this. i agree with the ages old saying that nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed.

that picture of the 45 is another reminder. think of surfing. do surfers "control" anything other than their actions? hell, sometimes nature takes them to their grave.

Propelled by is not controlling. How do you control the waves, or the snow on the mountain? Understanding perhaps, and controlling your response. Although not an avid skier, I've done it. I haven't used a surfboard, but I've body surfed at Torrey Pines. I could never control the waves, but I could pick one from several and exercise some control over how I move with it towards the shore.

Well stated, and more accurately than was 949 statement.

Reluctantly... 949 must admit, Al is...

Correct.

What 949 meant is having control over oneself while being engulfed in natural causes.  Having the ability to predict and adjust balance, etc right before nature brings a “crash and burn”. It is a very thrilling experience, and usually requires a lot of practice to get to the point where a person can live on the edge, like that.

There is a story about this... 949 will tell it, if you’d like to hear.

A word of warning, however.  It will not be told as elegantly as Stephen King would tell it.
