this one is dedicated to one of my favourite storytellers - Hugh MacLeod
Once he narrated " Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb". http://gapingvoid.com/?s=everest (the part is after about 1/4th down the page) The idea kind of stuck with me. there has to be a reason to live other than paying the bills :-P
obviously it is supposed to be difficult
it is a no brainer to guess that we might encounter difficulties
but if we wanted the easy stuff
we would have stuck to being the single cell amoeba, or something as simple and pointless.
