I Was at the Edge of the Earth Today

I am standing on a concrete platform underneath a large tree house, Casa del Arbol. The edge of the world is only a 30 minute drive from the town of Baños, Ecuador.

I latch myself into the swing, lift my legs, and let go. I swing back and forth, higher and higher into the air, so high I am almost perpendicular to the ground.

I want to see what the onlookers looked like, so when I reach my maximum height, I flip myself upside down, grasping the rope of the swing so I won’t fall.

I can hear their gasps and read their thoughts, this guy is a crazy son of a bitch.

As I slow, so does my excitement. My turn is over, and it is time to let someone else feel free.
