Walk by anyone on the sidewalk and you get a quick idea of what that person may be like just from how they compose themselves. Get closer and see the wrinkles and the scars on the skin. See, perhaps a tear or a quiver of the lip. Watch fidgeting hands. All of this begins to show a deeper emotion. All this shows who that person really is or what they may be going through. Same goes for mountains, as they create beautiful landscapes, but the closer you get the more cracks and blemishes appear. I enjoy exploring mountains and canyons this way, telling the real story, for it’s the cracks and blemishes that really makes us who we are.
