Mom and dad...., thanks for believing in me even when I kept blaming you for not doing so........,
With the summer sun on your back, a cool breeze in your wings, and an afternoon with nothing to do, the mind has all the peace and quiet required to ponder.
A dragon like me spends its life free in the sky, soaring wherever the wind takes us. We loop and spiral, dive and soar, dart like a hawk or sail like a gull, but always we are in control, always safe.
What about the little fish in the river? Always fighting an endless, unforgiving current, cold waters, lashing debris. They must hide in the shallows or cling to the stony bottom of the torrent, or risk being pulled over the falls.
It’s easy to forget, sometimes, that some circumstances are beyond our control. Perhaps those little fish are mightier than we dragons, for they fight everyday in a battle I should hope to never fight.
Could I survive a flight if the sky were an eternal tempest? I doubt it.

Do you need some inspiration ?? Nirmal Purja MBE, a former Gurkha and SBS operator just climbed Mount Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu in the past 48 HOURS. Most experienced climbers dream of just climbing one of those mountains in their lifetime. He has also climbed 2 other 8,000 + meter peaks within the past 12 days and another one within the past month. He has saved a climber’s life at the same time, and attempted to rescue others during his punishing schedule. He has led fixed rope teams to assist other climbers to achieve their dreams of reaching just one of those peaks. He is already the holder of a number of world records for his climbing exploits and with his latest exploit has just gained another. He is currently trying to get sponsors for other world record attempts this climbing season. His next targets are K2, Nanga Parbat, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum II, then on to
Manaslu, Shishapangma and Cho Oyu. See the link on his IG bio and give him a follow and If possible donate or sponsor to help Nims achieve his mission of Project Possible as funding is crucial at this time. Nims you are an inspiration to everyone who has ever climbed or have wanted to climb a mountain. Stay safe and keep reaching the stars. You name will live for evermore with the greats, Mallory, Hillary, Tenzing Norgay, Compagnoni, Lacedelli, Messner etc. Bio @nimsdai Photo #nimsdai@nimsdai#everest#mounteverest#lhoste#makalu#sbs#specialforces#legend#mbe#k2#mountain#moutains#worldrecord#worldrecordholder#guinnessworldrecord#worldrecords
