If you had told me a year ago that I would end up ziplining in Maui, I would have laughed at you! Why the hell would I do such a thing?

Well, that “thing” was my 13-year-old, Max, whose sole request on our trip to Maui was to go ziplining.

I thought I’d hate it. But in fact, it made me giggle like a girl. As adults, we don’t play enough. We don’t let go of our fears enough to just have a sensory experience.

This photo represents that freedom that I experienced zooming above the trees in Hawaii. It was a pretty amazing feeling.
