    See, I knew you had the Eye! That “perspective” is whats important to me because it’s my way of incorporating that gut feeling you get when your standing on the ledge, about to jump off(like those kids in the painting). Thats what the place is known for. p.s. That dizzying pattern next to you from the limestone layering only adds to that “sense” of falling. Thanks,Woodie. Aloha.
