Bridge to nowhere. When what we do has no “usefulness”, or is that so?…

This was a really steep climb up those stairs. Doesn’t look that way in the picture. But you are warned. So why did I climb up, knowing that I could not go anywhere once I reached the top. And he way down was likely more scary.

My reason was that I wanted to use it as one of the things I do to overcome my fear of heights. Like my mum, who will not stand in front of an upstairs window, I used to be an embarrassment when I was in the Boy Scouts. Frozen solid, or constantly shivering each time I was pushed up a tree to get on one of those exercises to use a rope to get between trees. Or rollercoasters.

So, I am not one of those well published folks who keep doing death defying moves just for fun, or showing off. I’m still a scary cat when it comes to keeping alive.

Oh, you also want to check out and prepare for how you may want to react, if these flimsy stairs were to break while you’re walking on them.

About Ed Simon

This is my user name as Editor of this blog. Some site visitors may already be acquainted with the different areas of my interest. I am uncertain how I should classify myself. I have lived studied and worked in Malaysia and in the UK for long periods. I have also travelled to many other countries for both work, pleasure, and just "wandering". I leave the postings to tell about my areas of work and interest, so as not to bore you with a lengthy (and probably embellished :-) recount of my triumphs and tribulations.
