Back in the seventies I worked on trails in Rocky Mountain National Park. Those summers taught me several powerful life lessons that have helped me deal with Parkinson's. One was the power of the mind. When you think you're physically at your end, you know that you have more. That mountains are climbed by placing one foot in front of the other. Technical climbing thought me you have to continue to move towards your destination. One can not stay clinging to the mountain, you can not go back, you can only move up. Perhaps you'll fall along the way, but choose your belay man carefully, they determine how far you'll fall. This painting of a hiking trail brings back memories.
