Dear Self,

Mountain climbing is difficult stuff.

It is the unknown that takes the most energy to manage.

The sudden cliff face, the random change in weather, the dry creek bed when you are almost out of water.

But we climb anyhow.

Why?

I think it is because eventually the view from the top of the mountain is worth it. The perspective it provides, the richness, the fulfilment, makes the challenges worth enduring.

That’s what I think.

I wonder if climbing actual mountains is as difficult and rewarding as climbing metaphorical ones?

Love

Luke
