e’er compelled to climb,
at top no more to find but
These are recent pics I took of “the littles” (who are striving to become middles) and “the middle” (who desperately desires to become a big).
And isn’t that exactly the point here?
Humans seem to be born with this urge to climb — to climb to higher places…higher positions…higher possibilities.
Yet we don’t know why — because, most often, once we get there and see from a different point of view, we find that reaching the destination may have been somewhat futile. After all, once you get “there,” there’s always somewhere else you could be, another position from which you can potentially see.
Just remember — climbing is an exciting, wonderful adventure…just as long as you’re not stepping on anyone else to get “there.”
