Goodbye Nepal – 6 May 2017

Eva Sifis

Well there it goes, the ground from beneath the wheels of this Thai Air flight.
There they go, the Himalayas from sight, teasing me with their grandeur from the knotted blanket of cloud.
I am exhilarated.
I am exhausted.
Just as my physical self experienced extremes never before felt, this past month has taken me to places within I am not yet capable of translating.
A range in there. Peaks and troughs, stunning achievements and shocking admissions of frailty; the sense of resolve is abiding. My internal anchor remains eternal, subject to elemental whims.
As I return to the Self for safe harbour, the tears that fall from my eyes reveal relief in their wake.
Adrenaline only takes you so far. The crash is coming..
