Chamonixoxo: a Tribute to Liz Daley

Next Up

There’s certain people in your life that really touch you,

that capture you in the rapture of their radiant soul.

*

Mountain people are magnetic people,

full of life,

luster, all a glow.

*

They radiate because they live fully,

present,

not letting life pass them by.

*

But they live on the edge,

a constant dance with the devil,

a balancing act between heaven and hell.

*

It is an art to toe the line.

*

We went to Chamonix, to learn, and to grow-

to share our experiences with each other and the world.

*

We came home scared,

humbled,

inspired.

*

The mountains allowed us to dance.

A delicate waltz on spring snow with

danger lurking in each wrinkle, corner, & crevasse.

*

A missed step could have been deadly.

But we kept pace with the beat.

*

Yesterday my tea bag told me that that intelligence and intuition are friends.

Funny truth to read on a cup of earl grey.

But truth it is.

*

As adventurous spirits we must listen and learn.

Intently, Intentionally,

with the utmost respect.

*

Because we’re all bound to miss a step now and again.

A sister lost.

A mentor gone.

*

But at the very least we know we have lived.

We know we have experienced everything within our capacity-

we have seen the earth breathe, and felt

the heart beat of the wild places of the world.

*

And for that we say thanks-

and surround ourselves with passionate people

full of zest for life.

*

Another cup of coffee.

Another chocolate croissant.

Living for today- for today

*

is life.
