para- “at or to one side of, beside, side by side” 

I often find myself bouncing around from one thing to another.  From swimming with sharks, performance guitar,  paragliding, to becoming a paramedic, I find it hard to call any one thing my "Jam."   I will always take some new thing/destination/sport/hobby as far as I can go.  

It was probably in 2003, when I was standing on the side of our local mountains in Santa Barbara CA, my older brother and I were going to take our first flight off the side of the hill.  After a clean launch my eyes opened wider, my worldview shifted.  Something happened...  And things have never been the same.
