Tales Of Ten Men

An Old Man’s Tale

My life has been like climbing a mountain.
A lot of work, a lot of learning.

Learning the right way to belay a line
and the wrong way to drive a piton.

There have been avalanches and rock slides.
Boulders a hundred times my size.

We have lost members of the party.

And now here I emerge from the tree line, almost there.

One long wistful look down that slope.
For I must turn my eyes upward and concentrate on this last leg.

The summit awaits.

Paz
