“Crossing a tall bridge gives me the heebie-jeebies. Just say “Grand Canyon Skywalk,” and I drop to my knees and wheeze. I’d still be frozen to the handrail of that glass-bottomed walkway if the guides didn’t insist that I move along.
The idea of floating around in space is so far beyond what I find terrifying that I go blank at the thought of it, like imagining myself strapped to the side of a highrise building washing windows. The best I can muster is a cartoon image of me as a stick figure with a caption that reads, ‘Me here, yeah, right, me, ha ha ha!’.” Emoji: the scream. #bookexcerpt #LoveEarthNow
