A german byword says that “The greatest happiness on earth is sitting in the saddle of a horse”. The only thing I ride is my bike wherefore I’m the wrong person to confirm that quote but perhaps some people say so because they get closer to the clouds on a horse’s back.
I’m always happy at the top of the mountains. When I reached the summit. And amusingly I’m angry at myself when I have to interrupt my hike. My work. My efforts. It doesn’t matter if it’s wise to interrupt my efforts because of the weather or any outside influences. It’s just hard for me to be happy if things have to be cancelled. If things have to be cancelled they are not finished. And I haven’t reached the summit.
There is a peak at every summit so that people can go home. Finish your project, your trail and demand yourself to reach an aim also if it’s a small one. Do the hike, reach the top. Grab the f*cking clouds and get sunburned at the bright spot called success. And return home to prepare for the next task. Happily.
This picture was taken at my 2nd hike at the Kampenwand. I still haven’t reached the peak but I’ll try to reach it again and again.
