MY FIRST TIME SKYDIVING AT BIG SUR

What a trip! It's true, people look like ants from up there. The black, shiny, segmented bodies, the large abdomens, the long, stick-like legs, the waving antennae, the way they cluster around a rotting animal carcass... I wonder if people on the ground look up and say, "from down here, skydivers look like little tiny spiders, dislodged from a sac hanging from the giant mother spider and raining down upon us." Probably they don't, because from up here I would see them scattering and screaming like frightened ants, and I don't see that. In fact, I don't see any people at all. From up here, Big Sur bears an uncanny resemblance to the base of the tree next to my bus stop. How weird!
