Rising

May 31, 2013

I sit above the fray, removed from trials and pain of the ants below. There is freedom here to not engage in the tussles of war, religion, fear, hate. I worship vertical space.

    That last sentence is fantastic – what a great way to put it.

    Vertical space is the most convenient sometimes (:

    Vertical,eh? Well, that is one way of looking at things. 🙂 Nicely done :))

    I like this! That’s how I feel when I’m up somewhere high looking down. 😀

    I never thought of it like that before, but I think I worship vertical space, too. Thanks for this. It’s lovely.

    I worship (and fear) vertical space. – I love that

    Definitely moving. I like the theme of being above the fray but your last line is jarring in a good way.

      Whenever I go to the ocean and hike, I get high ASAP and watch the little ants on the beach and imagine what they are doing and saying (besides running in and out of the water). Thank you for your response.

    “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills…” maybe my favorite psalm…
    Also the only way to live in small spaces.

    Wow! You packed so much into 33 words. Excellent interpretation of the photo!

    “I worship vertical space.”
    YES.
