This story is dedicated to my niece Bradley, the reading-est girl I know, who sent me my very first piece of fan mail.
“I can’t see!” It’s ironic that my first thought was, God does not want me to reach the top of this mountain.
Gravity seemed to increase its pull on my body, or at least just on my insides. My blood turned as cold as the ice to which I clung and fear chilled me deeper than the wind. My footing hadn’t changed; my grip hadn’t changed; but my sense of security had suddenly vanished. I was in a cloud of confusion, isolated by sudden and inexplicable blindness. And I was afraid.
