Daily Prompt: Fright Night.
What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us FRIGHTENING.
When this chap landed on the beach, I showed him the picture I’d taken of him and an eagle, flying together and offered him a copy. He, in return, offered me a tandem paragliding ride.
Me?! Jump off a cliff?
It was a great opportunity. A free ride! Look how comfortable he is up there, just sitting in an easy chair, sailing above the ocean with an eagle.
I tried to imagine running, deliberately toward the edge of the cliff. Would my legs even allow that? How many times have I had that nightmare, going off the edge, Thelma and Louise style.
Do I need to face that fear? I don’t think so.
I declined. Thank you very much.
I am such an earthling.
