From what perspective? From the plane? [In reply to] Can't Post

 

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

Will NOT be doing this.. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've got a thing about heights, too. I went to Salt Lake City a few years ago and went up Snowbird. Couldn't bring myself to get near the edge.

My opinion? It's insane. :) [In reply to] Can't Post

The thickness of the glass is irrelevant.



NO KIDDING! Seriously, there's Heights, and then there's Heights, and then there's Just About Literally Walking On Air (good phrase, GH). *shudder*

It's madness, I tell you! Madness! Tongue

"I stepped out of my body to let God slide in; although I'm still dressed in flesh that I spiritually died in. Alive in Christ a new creation started breathin', Life exists and through this came completion. ... I'm not that person anymore (more!)! That's what blood was shed for! No longer a failure, livin' life more abundantly, therefore you'll never see me livin' less than victory."
John Reuben.

"Desperation, needing You; every last breath I scream for You. Shatter me into a million pieces, make me new. ... Break me, mold me, make me what You want me to be; I am Yours, for You to use, so take and replace me with You."
Family Force 5.

"Under a light in Bethlehem, I was sifting through the sand; the saline burned my eyes, I was looking for Your hand. I gave up on myself, and left my pride disarmed; I cried out 'I'm alone!' and found myself in Your arms. 'Rest in Me, oh, My love; I have loved you before the world began. Rest in Me, oh, My love; you'll never wander too far to reach My hand.'"
Showbread.

Good thing, then, [In reply to] Can't Post

that I didn't take you for a trip up the CN Tower when you were here last September! The observation deck has a glass floor, and it's a long way down!
