This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.
This weekend the challenge from partner GC and me is ‘Leap‘.
Sometimes when standing atop a high tower or looking over a cliff a strange feeling overcomes me, it starts with the feeling that my glasses will fall of, progresses to a strange tingly feeling in the . . erm . . nether regions, and ends up with a feeling that I am about to leap from the height! I know others also get these feelings as I have asked people about it, but I wonder why? It is not like vertigo, the world does not spin, but more a feeling that the ground wants to pull us towards its embrace. I know of a viaduct that has/used to have a sign on it to this effect, warning that you may be overcome by the inexplicable urge to leap! Well I do not have a photo of that sign so here is a composite taken at Hells mouth last year, that attempts to illustrate the feeling.
