533 steps

psst — want to know a secret? well, it’s not that big of a secret. but i’m terribly, terribly afraid of heights. so one of the things i did in germany last week was climb the 533 steps to the top of the köln cathedral — as high, anyway, as they’ll let you go.

it’s pretty high. scratch that — mind-numbingly high. i was scared to death on the last several flights of stairs because i could see how high up i was, and how far down below me the street was.

but, you know, i’m glad i did it.

sometimes you just have to face what scares you and not let it win.
