we will soon be many

the body's movement is only a proxy for the soul's movement. the fact that I move my body is rather unimpressive, the way I choose to do it and what I allow the mountains to do to me is powerful. how is more important than what. it is not unique and I hope it grows less unique as time passes.
let's talk about the hills in realistic terms. it is time to stop trying to 'conquer', 'court', or 'devirginize' the peaks. this is demeaning to women, permits them no safe space in the mountain rhetoric. additionally, it is false. one can never effect the mountains, it is always the opposite. when experienced with authenticity, the mountains disrupt the athlete.
use every step to demonstrate your ethic.
we will soon be many.
