“In the perfect moment, I was so concentrated. There was no space for other thoughts. When you want to make a turn and you are at the top of a steep vertical wall. I mean when you are in the situation that if you fall you die, everything changes. You think very much about turning. You think very much about where to turn, and you do all this in a very special way. You act like a different person, you act with All yourself. You are making a completely different experience and in some way you are discovering yourself.
This is the magic of the mountain. You can accept to die for this, you don’t want to die, but to live so close to the possibility of dying you understand what is really important, and what is not. And this makes you a better person. It’s probably the highest moment of my life, because in the perfect moment I was, or I felt to be, a little superman.”
Amen brother, Amen.
