Yesterday - for 4 minutes - I rode high above NYC's East River on The Roosevelt Island Tram.
It's a daily part of life for thousands who fearlessly hop into the tramway cars and head for work on the mainland. It was no easy hop for this blogger, whose fear of heights has kept her from doing everything from changing out curtains to taking an airplane. This event was at least two years in the making. How many times did I go all the way to 62nd and First only to wuss out at the last minute?
But yesterday, with my best friend in tow, I actually did it - twice. My next project is to take a short shuttle flight. Look out friendly skies - here she comes.
June 26th will hereafter be Freedom from Fear Day here at Simply Frances.
