the edge :: chapter 1
I tried not to think. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad, after all...
Of course it wouldn't. I stared out through the cloudy atmosphere, barely able to acquire a glimpse of the ground from our plane, which was nearing 12,000 feet in the sky. A short period of turbulence rocked the plane, and I started to feel queasy. I looked over at my brother and father, as they glanced at me. My brother was laughing, and my father looked like he had waited his whole life for this. I decided not to spoil their fun.
I hadn't learned much about skydiving before we had gotten on the plane. It was just a sudden desire my father had; I suppose he was going through another phase of his. He was always trying out new things, and telling my brother and I how important and short life is. We quietly agreed, because we couldn't understand.
After a few more uncomfortable minutes, our co-pilot turned back toward us, and nodded his head. My stomach jumped into my throat; I could barely breathe as I climbed toward where w

We Will Win
Their faces tower over us,
flooded with grins.
But forget intimidation.
We will win.

Our Grave Mistakes
A solitary island, an oasis in the ocean
Filled with forest, and creatures of all kinds
Where the air is still
And the temperature slowly grows to another tropical day
When the sun is just barely tipping over the horizon
And souls gradually wake
You can soon hear the birds chirping,
And the many various sounds of life
Mixed with the soft splash of ocean waves against the faraway shore.
When light is shooting through all the gaps of trees it can find
And you can see great signs of life everywhere.
Where birds hop from tree to tree,
and small animals prowl in the darkness.
Where you can feel the great peace here,
because this place has not yet been touched by machine,
or by any pollution, or disease.
Where you can listen to these great sounds,
and see these great things,
and feel the wonder of this world.
I hope to see a place like this soon,
because this shall remind everyone that we are running out
of wonderful places in the world, that mankind has been filled
with a great sense of irr

Personal Quote: "Those who never try will never make mistakes."
I feel so stupid. :D

I have a small balcony outside my room, which can be entered through a slider door. I went out there today to clean the door (which had gotten quite dusty) and inadvertently locked myself out by completely sliding and closing the door.

I spent my time wisely, I suppose. I did clean the window as I planned, and then stood for about 20 minutes, hitting the glass and making my knuckles ache.

Finally, my brother, in his nearby room, got sick of the annoying banging sound and came to see that I had gotten myself stuck outside in 90 degree weather.

And my brother, being the person he is, started laughing at my knocking, and went back into his room. He returned with his phone and took a picture of me as I was nearly shattering the glass with my knuckles.

Phew. But hey, I'm back now.
