    Skiing into a black pist,

    hurting hidden black ice, and only being saved by a net that was really old already. Thanks to it, I did not fell from 50 meters. I wasn't really in pain or what for this, but I think a bit less luck would have killed me.

    It was many years ago,

    yet I still remember the experience vividly. I was ''code blue'' for two minutes. I felt a very peaceful floating experience as I looked down on my body; however, when I woke up, I felt a sense of urgency, realizing I was not through with my earthly life.
