From the Ashes

Stripped to our raw selvesshed of armor and protection. Chaos and denial slowlyreplaced by thought and cooperation. The defining characteristics of humans,what makes us unique and capable, surfaces through the darknessand with glorious irony what forces us apartbrings humanity closer together.

Film – Meru (2015)

I finally watched the documentary film “Meru” about a first ascent of the Meru Peak via the Shark’s Fin route up the central peak.  For anyone interested in mountain climbing, overcoming obstacles, and the human spirit, this is an excellent film with gorgeous cinematography. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2545428/?ref_=nv_sr_1 http://www.jimmychin.com http://www.conradanker.com https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meru_Peak http://www.alpinist.com/doc/web11f/newswire-meru-sharks-fin-anker-chin-ozturk

Knocked down, blown off the mountain, buried and struggling, yet we continue forward as the human spirit is resilient and true at the core when the best of us surfaces.
