"The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep."

I remember this well - it occurred about a month before I shipped off to boot camp.

Two years later I was stationed in Manhattan and visited the World Trade Center. I could not then nor can I now comprehend how anyone could accomplish such a feat (much less desire to do so).

To say I don't do well with heights is an understatement but while there I went to the roof anyway. Doing so did nothing to alleviate my phobia but looking back, I'm glad I went.

I've been wanting to see this movie since I heard about it. I'm with you...heights are scary.

I went up in the Sears tower with my daughter years ago...
freaked me out as when we got to the observation deck you could feel the building sway. I know they are supposed to do that...but yikes!
And the elevators taking us up to the top at warp speed-even scarier!

Now whenever I get to the edge of the Grand Canyon I get wobbly legs. It gets worse as I get older! What's up with THAT?

But put me on a huge roller coaster and I am fine. Weird, huh?
