Mountains are both journey and destination.
They summon us to climb their slopes, explore their canyons, and attempt their summits.
The summit, despite months of preparation and toil, is never guaranteed though tastes of sweet nectar when reached.
If my only goal is the summit, I risk cruel failure if I do not reach the highest apex.
Instead, if I accept the mountain’s invitation to journey and create meaning in each step, success is manifest in every moment.
(~ TA Loeffler)
