You’d be lifted up, and up, and up. Finally, when you could just about reach the sky, you’d be set down on those shoulders. Those shoulders that felt as solid as a rock. Each step you would feel like you were going to fall but you knew you wouldn’t. Even more than that, you would feel like you couldn’t fall.
It was amazing up there. You could finally see over everyone around you. People had to look up to you for once.
Looking back on that experience now, I think there was something more than being way up in the air that really made that a memorable experience. It was a change of perspective. For at least a little while you got to see the world in a whole new way. How often do we get that experience anymore?
Alright, it was also pretty exciting to be the tallest person around for a little bit.
