Some people say life is a river. I think it’s more like a mountain.
It has its ups…
It can be glorious.
Fraught with fire…
No one can climb it for you.
But, oh, what a trip.
As you find your way…
…the climb can be difficult.
But there will be beauty all around you. In little things….
…or stretched out before you in all its grandeur.
Life is a delicate balance, a precious jewel, a piece of work.
May there be friends to share the journey.
Look before you leap.
Wear the proper footwear.
And remember, we don’t trip on mountains. We trip on molehills.–Japanese proverb
