Rookie - 45 Points (5/11/1965 / Arkansas)

Profound


Sometimes....It is not the mountains
in front of you that hinder the path....
but the mountains within you.....

    I struggle with inner mountains well within range yet hard to scale.
    Profound indeed, short and to the summit. (Report) Reply

    Profound indeed. We often build up in our minds obstacles that are much greater than the actual impediments before us. Excellent write..10..
