Birdman's view: inside a corn maze

I have an irrational fear of corn mazes. I was recently reassured by a kind gentleman at the Niven's Apple Farm corn maze (while I stood breathlessly waiting for my family to emerge from the sky high corn) that they had "never in all my years truly lost anyone" in the maze. What did he mean by truly? If I'm only sort of lost in that mile high corn, that's good enough for me. I have been very careful not to project my heart-pounding panic onto my children...I just stand calmly off to the side and sweat it out but I'm always overjoyed to see them come thundering down the path with whoops of joy signaling they survived succeeded in cracking the maze. There is usually a great look out point within a corn maze like this one at Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch here in Mt. Pleasant...

I offered up my camera and my first born child, "Birdman", (who was delighted to chronicle the corn maze race) and he reappeared a looooong time later chock full of interesting facts about apples he'd learned along the way...

Here are some links to great corn mazes in South Carolina:

  2. The latest Oscar option of "Birdman" as the best film of 2014 not only defied moviegoers' choices, but it is also a session on how a powerful product can reduce reliability and hence believe in when it becomes so self-obsessed. One of the primary guidelines of proper marketing is to consider the passions of the focus on market before selection that may be unreliable with what you want your product to indicate in your sight (and hearts) of your primary clients. For example, was "Birdman" indeed the "best" film, or this is the "favorite" of the Movement Image Academy? crossword answers
