Why do writers write? Because it isn't there.
- Thomas Berger
It's always the journey, isn't it?
The Ascent, however well-mapped and traversed is different for anyone who takes it on. It was a bit of a shock to discover that there was another story - a hidden one - silently writing itself in the gaps of our compulsory Ascent log. It's definitely there, growing like lichen in the badly-lit side crevasses we've nervously passed over; never, don't ever, look down.
And this is where I have to say that I don't know where they're coming from, what they want or what they mean. I don't even know if I've caught all of them - maybe some have managed to escape into the wet space surrounding the tunnel vision of the Ascent. At least one chunk had weebled a fair distance before I managed to pin it down with an ice-axe. I'm not convinced that there won't be more of these strange growths. I'll try and isolate them from the main body when I spot them.
For now, I've plopped all these accidental off-topic/off-road autobiographical moments into a single bucket. Y'know, for your convenience.
Yes, you and no-one else. That's 'cause you're lovely.
I think they're in the right order now, even if the dates seem to be wrong.
