to summit

Everyone’s got a K2. 

That point on the horizon, pie in the sky, over the moon ideal you’re willing to risk life and limb for — metaphorically speaking —

Of course.

And yet.

I’ve been thinkin. 

Maybe the way to approach your K2 isn’t a matter of how high or how far — but rather —

How much it means to you.

Cause if you really want something and you’ve made a decision to summit — well, you know it’s gonna take commitment, effort and training. 

And by virtue of the fact that it’s something you don’t already have, but want to have, and aren’t sure you can have —

It’s also gonna take the courage to trek into the unknown. 

To leave behind what you know well enough to know it’s not enough in order to discover what you don’t know — about yourself — and another —


And you’re bound to lose your footing.  Bound to get a few scrapes.  Maybe even survive a landslide — or two.

But you try.

You try.

Because it means — just that much.
