I wonder what does notinvolve risk. Freedom of course bears a great risk but a risk with guaranteedreward and “If a man is alive, there is always danger that he may die, though the danger must be allowed to be less in proportion as he is dead-and-alive to begin with. A man sits as many risks as he runs.” Thoreau from Walden.
I suppose while the risk is being processed, it is an ever present danger. Afterwards it only exists as a memory that enhances the experience and creates a need for more of the same.
