The mountain has taught me not to cheat, to be honest with myself and with what I was doing.
If I had my life to live over I’d dare to make more mistakes next time. I would take more chances, make more journeys and count more sunsets, I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers.
Jorge Luis Borges
I look for my clown nose in my backpack. I put it on and get myself photographed at the peak of the mountain. A way to remind me that we are only mountaineers and the fate of the world does not depend on our actions.
