“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” – Martin Buber
I was out of shape when I climbed the Great Wall. I knew that you didn’t have to be perfectly fit, but somehow you need to a tiny bit of inspiration to move that foot forward and make each step to the top. The grand turret in Mutianyu kept me moving forward, slowly, to the top. I did not finish the Wall from end to end, but somehow, I was proud to have reached the top, of pushing myself to where I thought I couldn’t be, and of having moved forward no matter how tiring it got.
This is my entry to this week’s photo challenge. Other great photos can be found here.
Happy weekend everyone!
