    I learned when taking flying lessons that bravery got me in the plane, willing to learn; and, the thing I felt once I landed was courage. Courage lead to more bravery and a virtuous cycle lead to my pilots license. (Courage feels as good as sex, but the after glow lasts for DAYS.)

      Hi C,

      That is so cool that you got your pilot’s license! Thank you for your comment! I agree about the courage/sex equivalent! I feel that way about writing songs too. There is almost nothing better than being in the flow of creating a song and then giving birth to it. Maybe that process is about courage too so it goes back to your theory.

    Great story, using a great (closet) musician to illustrate what can be accomplished by becoming brave!

    Erin, thanks so much for being a great power of example of walking through fear towards joy! It was great to see and hear you at TMTTR — I especially loved your song “You Bought Your Man”!
