It is like climbing a mountain. It sometimes gets to be a chore to place one foot in front of the other. Below is Hallett Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, and yes, I have climbed it several times. All those tiresome, uphill steps lead to the release of friendly endorphins, and you begin to see the lovely, small things along the trail such as wildlife and mountain flora. When you reach the top you forget the hard work and bask in the glory of exhilaration and the beauty before you. The achievement of that goal stays with you the rest of your life.

Don't forget to smell the flowers along the way - the small steps of artistry that have been created by your hand and mind.
