What Sisyphus learned long ago is still relevant today. When a rock twice your own weight is merely inches from its balance point, every bit of your strength and desire to succeed is what makes it go over the edge, but it’s difficult to recall Sisyphus dealing with hornets on both elbows and another hornet, who was fairly adventurous, that made it all the way up his pant leg.
250 square foot rock wall, 472 aphids inhaled, 24 hornet stings, 5 boxes Annie’s Mac N’ Cheese, 4 packets of Zatarain’s resulting in 1 upset stomach, and two nights in a new home: all to learn that if a tree falls in the middle of a wilderness, you may not be able to see it, but it certainly makes a sound.
250 square feet of wall
2600 feet of trail brushed
50 fingers and 50 toes, all accounted for
