a good end





To end 2010 it felt good to climb this mountain and shed the stuff that I don't need or want to carry into the next year.  To think over the year past and the year ahead during five hours of putting one foot in front of the other. To be awed by the creative beauty and just breathe.
This was a good end to a year full of change and upheavals of all sorts. And a reminder to myself that despite difficulties and darkness, despite brokenness and betrayal there is hope and light, and if I can keep on believing one step at a time I will soon come to *see* and gain some perspective.
This mammoth walk was a way to reset my mind and heart on the things that are good and leave behind yesterdays sorrow and disappointment and embrace the now.

Goodbye 2010 and thank you for all you taught me and where you lead me.

Amazing Skye. I can still remember doing that walk years ago, I thought it would never end. What a great way to end the year. Maybe next year I can do it with you :)

What a brilliant way to end the year. I love your idea of shedding the baggage of the year as you climb.
