Fear of Falling


Todd Faber, in SANDMAN: “Fear of Falling”

Sometimes you wake up.
Sometimes the fall kills you.
And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.

    Sometimes you are noticed around,
    Sometimes you lurch and become schlimazel…
    And sometimes, when you Dance, you are liberated.

    I’ll take my chances…

    My last post relates to this I feel.

    Sometimes you have other things on mind when you take the leap…
    Whats even more scarier than falling is teetering on the edge…

    The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy states that the key to flying is to fall – and miss the ground.

    I wouldn’t want to try it.

    @ Ashwin: Is that a ‘boy story’ or a ‘girl story’? Mine too! :mrgreen:

    @ Cynic: Hebby bud-day one month away.

    @ Devesh: You, I guess. I was relating a personal episode to the story in Sandman.

    @ manuscrypts: That’s true. I didn’t this time, for a change.

    @ Anon Y.Mouse: One of my favorite books!
