TBWCYL Day 275 - High

Yesterday I had to find the highest point in my city and be the master of all I surveyed. Well, the highest point in Dallas may be a building but I don't live in Dallas proper. I live in a suburb and that means that the highest point is actually the overpass.

Walking up to that point is pretty much a death sentence so I got in the passenger seat and Diana drove up. She refused to stop and let me get out since it is a one lane road and she is a chicken so I had to settle for looking out the window and trying to get a decent picture of our town from high up in the air.

I am not really sure I grasped the magnitude of the altitude but the idea that I am master of all of the city is kind of ridiculous really. I don't have political aspirations to begin with and if I did they wouldn't be to run this town. Still, for a small town it seems a lot larger when you look at it from here.

That is all,

I wouldn't even know what the highest point in my town is but I fear heights so I don't want to go there anyway... well, it's not so much heights themselves as falling off them that I fear.

I can't say I am afraid of heights but I understand the fear when you look over a building ledge and it hits you that you would die if you fell from that height. It is freaky.
