Sam’s Ses Challenge #12: Rise

Welcome to this week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge.

Every weekend, Sam and I pick a word or phrase as the theme for the week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to post something Ses-related that you think fits with this week’s challenge.  Don’t know who the Ses are?… click here to find out.

Your contribution can be anything you want, a photograph, a short story… anything. Visit the main Sam’s Ses Challenge page to learn more.

The fun will be focused here on my blog, but feel free to play along on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Just be sure to link back to the challenge on whichever media you choose, to be certain Sam and I get to see it.

I hope you’ll join in.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge theme is Rise.

Here’s my contribution:

1353 feet above Chicago, braving one of the Four glass-floored cubes that form The Ledge, part of the Skydeck experience Atop the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower).

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge was itself partially inspired by Atop from the Daily Post, Four from Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack?, and my own post from earlier in the week Vertigo above Chicago – The Willis Tower Ledge.

    It is very brave of Jaspa to be up there in the sky, standing on glass and looking down below. Hope he wasn’t afraid. But it doesn’t look like it. It looks like he is having a lot of fun up there. Congrats on publishing Jaspa’s Journey. All three of them too. Very inspiring 🙂
