When you’re perched high in the mountains, on a peak or otherwise lonesome ridge, you have the unique ability of seeing the world as if time has stopped. The remainder of the world (with the exception of everything humankind has intervened in) continues to move irrespective of time. The birds fly. The wind blows. The trees grow. Time is not relevant to these forces or animals. Humans are the only animals on the face of the planet that adhere to watches and clocks and alarms and other mechanical, electronic, or digital timekeepers.
The next time you’re in the mountains, take a moment to sit down, enjoy the scenery, and absorb all that you can- this is one of the few places you can be unperturbed by the busyness of life, the hectic ratrace we all seem to partake in, willingly or not.
