The Call for Adventure – Meditation on the Fool
‘I like to travel and I always look to see if there are old stories about places I plan to visit. Conversely, a story sometimes makes a seemingly meaningless place interesting to visit. For this reason, I climbed Mount Cadair Idris n Wales. Among the people who climbed this mountain before me are the magician Merlin and the poet, Yeats. They wrote that if you spend the night on this mountaintop, you change into a visionary or a poet.
So I decided to follow their footsteps. In my naivety, I assumed that there are worse examples to follow. I thought it might be an interesting journey, not realizing that fools walk in areas that angels wouldn’t dare to tread… So here I am, climbing the so-called Chair of the giant Idris. The mountain is steep; I can hear my breathing getting faster. I climb the sandy path through the pine wood. I inhale the smell of mushrooms evaporating from the moist woods. Every time I touch the branches, the pine trees greet me with their spicy perfume, drifting nebula form fragile veils that filter the sun’s light. When the rays of the sun break through the mists, they create cathedrals of light. The leaves of the trees whirl on the wind, rushing, bowing and receiving the blessings of the elements. They move like dancers, engaged in a whirling duet with the ever-changing forces of nature….’
