Finding joy is like climbing a mountain. Some look at the summit and never attempt the journey, believing it is impossible to attain–at least for them. Others grimly put one foot in front of the other but quit before they get to the top, believing other things ultimately are more important. Still more doggedly attempt the climb but discover, years later, that they have going around in circles in the foothills. Others climb with friends who have gone before and find themselves, at last, at the peak. A few, however, merely look at the summit and find, to their surprise, that they are already there.
