"Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve...
...They are the cathedrals where I practice my religion." -Anatoli
It is in those utterly simplistic moments that I can hear the profound message of The Earth. Yet for all her majesty and grandeur, it is an alien world where I experience true transcendence. Alone, far away, isolated in both mind and body, I recognize that time stands still. These wild landscapes and peaks remain unchanging, unthinking, unsympathetic to my feeble ambitions. I cannot explain nor share. I have found the answer, the meaning to life. I am alive.
