The Border between Day and Night


Riding the gondola up the highest mountain on the planet, I wish I could open the door and dangle my feet and scare the wits out of my sister Carmen. With gravity here ¾ what it is back home on Earth, I wonder if the fall, perhaps 100 feet? A thousand? I have no clue about the distances to the slopes below—would kill me or simply maim me; crushed, slashed and bleeding, impaled on the spiked trees with the long, slender barbs—at least I think they are trees. Here, they could be anything, sentient beings rooted to the earth

She sits, hands folded, looking at the astonishing view with bright eyes. Perfectly still, only the hem of her cotton dress quivering slightly to show that she is very excited. Carmen always, still, like a vigilant vole.
