Seems unimaginable in certain situations, and far too easy in others. Why such imbalance? I don’t have an answer. Arrogance or shortsightedness broken only by laziness? Or is it strong independent spirit poorly balanced out by realism and the urgency of problems. The latter a good soother, the former getting closer, but still probably far from the truth.
Anyhow, back to more familiar territory - climbing. Ongoing preparation for projects has been good, and bad. Physical preparation has gone, overall, slightly backwards. Mental preparation, in a roundabout way, is probably a lot better. Funny how the two don’t always have to go hand in hand. It's the normal rollercoaster ride. Between big ups and downs, you can still strike the route on the middle of an 'up'.
