I was born under the zodiac sign Sagittarius. And whether you believe it to be complete hocus pocus or not, it has always struck me that many of the traits of Sagittarius reflect my own life values.
‘Their open mind and philosophical view motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. They are honest to a fault and will never shy away from the truth.’
G said to me once, ‘you are the most honest person I have ever met’. I took it as a compliment.
It is that last line that compels me to regularly read the blog of climber Andy Kirkpatrick. I adore the honesty in it. And the eloquence. Especially the eloquence. One of his most recent, ‘Staying on the Train’ sums up exactly what I’ve been trying to say lately but just haven’t been able to find the words. So, why read mine when someone else says what I’m trying to much better.
