Give me a mountain

To be a human is to grow.

And to grow, we all need a job to do.

Like an Australian Kelpie, we all need a job to do. The Kelpie is never happier than when put to work on a task.

For the rest of us, we need to master a skill, grow a skill, build a family, lead a community or create a business.

The alternative is for things to stay the same and risk stagnation or death by decay.

Without purpose, mastery, or simply a job to do, the holy trinity of depression, illness and anxiety can creep in and slowly choke us.

Give me a mountain, any day.
