The Story Behind This Tile
Suspended above the earth, partway through the ascent, a question enters the mind: Am I prepared to make the summit? Despite the readying before the climb, doubts about our capacity to reach the top creep in. When we imagine the man at the top of the mountain, what we see is the summit. What we miss is the aspiration and dogged work despite the doubt. At the moment of mental stalling, to continue climbing, we focus not on reaching the top, but reaching past our doubt and taking the next step.
