I am afraid of heights.
It is a pretty serious problem i am told.
Given my line of work there are certain things expected of you. Even more importantly, i am not told, are things that are not expected.
Fear of Heights appears to be one of them. It is why i am seated here waiting.
My condition has been referred to the people above me and some form of reckoning or reconciliation is scheduled to take place.
I think it's a lot of fuss over nothing really but everyone assures me that, in my line of work , it isn't.

You see I am an Angel.

could be a challenge

a couple of days ago I met a guy who gets vertigo on planes... but only if he can't see the horizon. His coping strategy is obviously a window seat which is just as well because he and his girlfriend live different sides of the Atlantic..

Might have to tape a picture of a landscape to an airplane windowshade when it gets dark. Or give him a webcam-ish view of the artificial horizon instrument from the cockpit...

I like the concept here, Carl. Is there more?

I feel like I've seen some of your stuff online somewhere while I was poking around on the web earlier this year, looking for writing sites. Where might that have been?

Keep it up! :)

I popped over to see how the story is shaping up. It's really good! There's no better way to make people take a second look at ordinary things than to show them those things through a pair of alien eyes.

Once deployed, said angel walks into a bar to be greeted by the immortal lines

"Did you hurt yourself when you fell from heaven?"

Have you read Glen Duncan's I, Lucifer?
