Breath of Life

Do you ever get discouraged?
By your own propensity to fail; To get discouraged?
By the unkindness that masquerades as busyness.
By morning news and weather...
By slugs and barking dogs?
Do myriad joyous wonders occur each day or is the world a howling wilderness?

I heard an interview on the radio yesterday with a man who has recently climbed Mt. Everest. He mentioned that out of the 200 that attempt the summit each day, 6 die.
Most of them die because of lack of oxygen.
Breathing is pretty essential I guess.
I thought falling would be the biggest threat, but it was as simple as breathing in and out.

The breath of life. Sweet Breath of Life.
