Many rivers to cross... sang Jimmy Cliff in 1989, in true West Indian fashion. I have had my crosses to bear recently and none of them has been easy. Many years ago, a friend remarked that God gives to those who can accept the responsibility. I wish I didn't have the burden of having to be so brave.

This life is sent to try us, to make us stronger and most importantly, to turn us into a better and improved version of ourselves by the time we get to the end of it. Whatever you believe, maybe the vision of this mountain will help: we all struggle like hell to reach the top and may never even get there especially since there's no trodden path already in place to guide us. Luck, courage and a belief that we might make it. That's the best we can hope for.
