I am honored and pleased you would like to use my words, Marie. I like it and think it is cool. (My wife agrees.)

I stared out into the snowstorm. It was April 2020, early in the COVID pandemic. My husband and I had newly relocated north of the Arctic Circle to a small town on a small peninsula with craggy mountains that fell straight into the sea. I was searching for a inspiration for a new illustration, something simple and true that spoke to my feelings.

I found these words and knew exactly what to do with them. They are Jeff’s answer to his publisher when asked why people (Jeff) go to the Himalayas to climb mountains. My husband and I trekked the Himalayas with Nepalese friends in 2019 and were awestruck by the rugged terrain and gentle people of Nepal. I highly recommend reading Jeff’s book that prompted the quote.
