It was a tough fight, ma, but I made it.
This is my 1000th post. It took me only two months shy of five years to arrive at this milestone.
Here is the view from the top of Mount Everest. The photo was taken by Barry Bishop, an American mountain climber, in 1963:
Barry Bishop wasn't the first to scale Mount Everest. That feat was accomplished ten years earlier by Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay. Barry wasn’t the first, and he wouldn’t be the last. Still, being on top of the world felt good.
Today I know exactly how Barry felt.
Okay, maybe not exactly.
As Scarlett O’Hara once said, however, “Tomorrow is another day.”
Okay, she was a fictional character. I get that.
Please don’t rain on my parade just yet, because being on Cloud Nine is a rare experience. Let me enjoy it while I can.
The descent will begin soon enough.
