    No more skiing today, or at least not another black slope. My thighs are telling me don't do it..

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Been sad much of this week. The friend in the yellow here died on Monday having fallen off a cliff in Nepal. A very outgoing and positive person. Her philosophy was 'you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing the lawn. Climb that goddam mountain'

    Sorry to hear that

    There's a lot to be said of being an "indoors type".

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Very odd faces I must say. Kind of blurry like something out of Dr Who.

    Shame, although I never understand people who take risk to their life like that. Fear is there for a reason.

    I can and do understand. Most people probably never have a 'near death' experience so don't understand when those that squeeze the most out of their lives do the things they do. No, I wouldn't climb mountains (apart from being too old), but I do race cars.

    Exhilaration is there for a reason.
