Never mess with nature! As a kid you’re usually quite careless when you go skiing or swimming or just roaming through the woods etc. I know I was. But now I’m at an age where I have experienced, seen and heard enough to be in awe of the the forces of nature. Maybe life is more enjoyable if you’re able to ignore all the dangers, but it can also be much shorter that way. Also, the trick is to not be scared, but to have respect.
