everest photo of the day

and here it is...you know you wanted it.

and so i was wrong about an unusually early bid for the summit over the weekend. (triquet, notice i did not use summit as a verb!)


Paul Adler



icy winds and lots of snow fell on base camp overnight, delaying teams planning to tackle the icefall....hoping it clears and doesn't cause problems in the icefall.



There is struggle here, there is pain here, there is never a dull moment and things will get even harder as time goes by. I have been sick, I have been at risk of an Edema and my emotions are all over the map. When I hurt and when I feel pain, it reminds me that I am alive. Truly alive. Our body is truly “the temple of our soul”
and through it we can touch the deepest part of our soul. I look at this mountain and it scares me to death, but that does not drive me home, it empowers me. The thought of failure, when so many are watching, could drive me away, but it fuels the strength in my heart. I am here to reach the summit, but the prize is far greater than a view from the top of the world, it is the view within ME that will be so crystal clear. The view within ourselves when we surpass what we only dreamed possible.

I enjoy the Everest climbing season, too. I don't have the time this year to follow it closely, but I'm enjoying getting updates through your journal.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
