“You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.” — Rene Daumal
The fundraising and media spots are behind us. It’s time to hit the trails!
Today, Dan will head north to prepare for the beginning of our campaign which begins tomorrow – a campaign, we might add, created out of and because of all of the amazing support, pledges and well wishes you all have extended toward us, and toward the Holy Cross Family Learning Center and its good works.
We are frankly humbled by the steady stream of pledges we have received which will make each and every summit – whether the highest at Mt. Washington at 6,288 feet or the lowest at Mt. Tecumseh at 4,003 feet – a worthy goal in and of itself.
Many thanks to Sister Jackie and all the sisters at the Family Learning Center who have embraced us and our idea and kept us encouraged and on point.
And so, finally, one last suggestion. Many of you have already subscribed their email to this website. Thank you! If you wish to follow along day by day as we move through September, we strongly urge you all to do so. Subscribing means that posts on this website will come directly to your email address. It’s a great way to stay in touch with how things are going.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you!
We’re ready. Here we go!
Dan and Meena
