Alpinist 46

Alpinist always delivers.

“Perhaps that’s what it takes to become a great climber or a great artist: to be able to force yourself to that threshold where the consequences of your perception seem like a matter of life or death, to let the rest of the world blur — until you can truly learn to see one thing, as close as possible to what it really is. And afterward,  you might realize that climbing or art is just one means to reach that kind of vision.”

– From The Illusion of Control by Chris Van Leuven
