Climbing the Tower

Posted by Deone / March 23, 2012

When I was a little girl (about 5) my mom took me and my two little sisters to Astoria to play on the beach and to climb the Astoria Tower. What she didn’t know (and I didn’t either) is I am TERRIFIED of heights. With the steps being metal grate and not solid, I completely panicked 1/2 way up the tower. What was my poor harried mother to do? She left me on a landing where I cried and watched a spider crawl up the wall. While dear ole’ mom continued the climb to the top without me to enjoy the view. To this day, I have never gone back “conquer” my fear of the tower. This, I believe could be my opportunity.
