Sadness

One thought on “Sadness”

  1. Me and the Lake District! I love Glenridding. Apart from the lake there are the mountains all around including one of the biggies, Helvellyn. So you set off up the track and the birds, the sheep, the green is all fantastic. Except…. it gets steeper. Your legs ache. Your lungs are complaining. You can hear your heartbeat. Then the scary, spectacular bit – Striding Edge – rocky, narrow like a knife edge, sheer drop on both sides, hundreds of feet.
    Why am I doing this? I could have been cruising down the lake on the steamer, beer in hand. This is crazy! Then, sitting on the summit cairn with just mile upon mile of sky in all directions, and everything laid out at your feet – even the tiny little steamer you could have been on, and you know; it was worth it.
    Sleep well!
