60 Seconds for Tips on Thursday: One Climbs. One Sees. One Knows.
by Diane Wyzga | August 20, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Portobuffole, Italy!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Isn’t it thrilling to climb a mountain, make your way up to the very top, to the summit that beckoned you from below?
The French poet and ardent mountain climber René Daumal noted that “You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.”
Practical Tip: Climb your mountains, see where you’ve come from, where you are headed – and then you’ll know what you didn’t know before.
