“A lone peak of high point is a natural focal point in the landscape, something by which both travelers and local orient themselves. In the continuum of landscape, mountains are discontinuity – culminating in high points, natural barriers, unearthly earth.” ~ Rebecca Solnit
“Perhaps the reason our hearts leap at the sight of jagged rock and majestic peaks has as much to do with the fact that, for our eyes and soul it is a departure from the ordinary, everyday, flat scenery that we are accustomed to, and gives us new and fresh perspective and inspiration.
At one time or another, each of us has an opportunity to be a lone peak, a mountain so to speak, a focal point for someone else. What a privilege and an awesome responsibility to be something by which weary travelers in this world, and locals alike can orient themselves and be inspired to hold fast to hope, to live true, and to feel wonder at life once again.”
