"You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know".
Rene Daumal
My Mountain Leader (S) Award has opened up a new world to me. Amassing QMD's was not a necessary chore, but a passport to encourage me further afield, for new vistas and even more, precious memories. The quote above, from the film, "Drawn", encapsulates this feeling and spurs me on to new horizons.
