During the brief, shining seconds of my life when I was able to climb mountains, others whom I joined in that endeavor taught me much. I learned, metaphorically, that as you climb up the years of life, place each footstep higher up. If you let your feet travel up and down the smaller rocks in your path, you will double the difficulty of your journey.
The interesting part is figuring out where to step up.
