Pebble for your thoughts

I've had a tiny, pebble of a thought stuck in my shoe for two weeks:

If we treat mountains like insurmountable obstacles, we'll forever live at sea level[1].

Instead, if we treat mountains like the sophisticated piles of tiny rocks they are, we can steadily climb to higher peaks.

  1. Ahem. "We the mysterious, disembodied narrator voice interrupt this honest-but-naive metaphor plucked from a 90’s corporate motivational PowerPoint to remind you that you could also...drown. 'Cause of, I don't know, something like climate change related sea level rise? Spurred on by a flagrant and systemic disregard for finding new ways of existing as humans? ooOoooOooo <--- ghost noises cause you're dead now." ↩︎
