It’s day nine of my 10-day Italian detox, and I have to admit to feeling seriously blissed out. I’m so relaxed that it actually makes me uncomfortable, it being such a rare thing in my existence. I spoke to my wife and kids on Skype, and watched them bickering away back in my normal existence. I told them to calm down and not talk to each other in that manner. Something in my new spiritual persona jarred with them and they all stopped arguing with each other and stared at the screen.

My daughter stood, frozen, on top of the cliff. It was about a 20-foot drop down into the dark waters of Lake Joe and this would be the biggest jump of her life so far. From our speedboat below, her mother was screaming: "Don't let him force you to do it. You don't have to do anything you don't want to ..." Parker turned towards me. "Do you think I should do it, Dad?"
