I’m getting there. Slowly, slowly, working my way up the side of the mountain that is my thesis. I know why I love the physical pursuits that I spend so much time doing. They give me a tangible analogue for the mental work I do during the other half of my life. A project can be daunting. You will want to give up and go home. You may find yourself sprinting towards what turns out to be only a false summit. Short cuts cost you time. And breaks can be both helpful and hurtful.
I took a nice break this weekend. Still got a little bit done, but I think this one was helpful, and necessary. And I made up a complement to the Mountain Pose shot for a friend.
