Perl 5.35.1 released
His first marriage ended. A new relationship with an old friend
straightened him out. “I realized that I can't live like I was and be
with Naomi,” he said. “I wanted to become a better man for her. At
first. Then it was for myself too.” He started seeing a therapist. There
were limits: He told her he wasn't interested in exploring the part of
him that wanted to do stunts. “I know that needs looking at,” he said.
“But I didn't want to break the machine.”

It wasn't just about jeopardizing his livelihood, he explained. Doing
stunts “was exciting. It's something that I did with my friends. And I
was decent at it.” It wasn't so much about the stunts themselves, which
were terrifying, as about how completing them made him feel. He loved,
he said, “the exhilaration and relief, once you get on the other side of
the stunt. Or when you come to. You wake up, you're like, ‘Oh, was that
good?’ And they're like, ‘That was great.’ You got a good bit when
there's seven people standing over you, snapping their fingers.” When we
spoke, he still hadn't broached the topic in therapy. “I'll talk about
it eventually,” he said. “It's not something I need to know this second.”
