Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live the questions now... Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live... into the answer ~Rainer Maria Rilke~

Even though I was so shocked and sad by the accident, I can't help thinking how over confident he always was, it was just a matter of time!

I guess it was the buzz, he got from playing russian roulette, with these animals, because i really don't see that he needed to get so close to a sting ray, for a good shot, unless he was on the adrenalin rush, that sometimes occurs, around wild animals.

He was however a very good entertainer, that loved his job, A sad day indeed.
