I don't remember if I have ever posted this on here, so I will now.
I wrote this about the purpose of my vertical life, which obviously means CLIMBING:
PURPOSE OF MY VERTICAL LIFE
I love the exhilarating, zen-like effect that climbing has on me. When scaling up a wall, it is as if all of the conflicts in my life temporarily disappear and the only thing that matters is a single movement of my body to hold on to a piece of rock. I love the intense focus, the perpetuating concentration, the endless trance. Climbing is truly meditation through movement. Everytime I climb, I feel like I understand myself and my purpose with extreme clarity. Every movement is inevitably turned into a tunnel-vision goal, which is achieved immediately almost every time, over and over and over again. I don’t know who, what, or where I would be without climbing. It is what I live for and what I will be doing for the rest of my life.
