Wrote this one for you:

“Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion.” — Anatoli Boukreev

Pick a mountain. Any mountain.

Life’s a beach. When tsunamis roll in there’s no option but to seek the rarefied air of higher ground.

At the moment I have bloggers block so bad I can’t even blog about why I can’t blog. So I’ve picked my mountain.

It’s one that takes a bit of preparation — an exercise regime, some attention to diet, that kind of thing. The idea is to keep focused on something bigger than the tsunamis. The actual climb is the easy bit. I’m no mountaineer. I never go further than base camp. This time there’s not even a base camp. I’m taking the scenic route.

So pick your mountain. Any mountain. And when you’ve climbed it, sit back and let go. That’s the hard part.
