Inktober 2018 – Day 5

Art, Illustration, Ink, Markers, sketching

Today’s word is Chicken. I am one.

As a child I was fearless. Mountain climbing led to almost falling off a cliff. I then knew fear.  That was nothing because there was Coney Island.

The Cyclone roller coaster. I can close my eyes and see and feel this whole experience. Open box seats, with a bar at arms length, barely a belt. This roller coaster clicks up ever so slowly. I wave at my Mom and friend. Hey! We get to the top and this sucker goes straight down. I mean, you are free falling face first. Nothing to hold on to but a rickety bar. My Dad and brother are laughing their heads off. Well, good for them. I lost my mind. It was the sixties.

This is the Sandia Peak Tramway at 10,679′. Very High.

Heights don’t work for me now. So be it. I own being a chicken. Proud and loud.
