Our journey didn’t need a certificate. It didn’t need others acknowledgements. There was no summit, no turn around point, it was a one way journey into the future as we had dreamed it. One where the short time on earth we are blessed to spend together was priority. One where we didn’t live by “some day” but made our shared desire for adventure our present. It wasn’t easy. But some how on our journey it got easier and easier to see how uncertain life really can be. We began to see that bank accounts, pensions, and homes weren’t pleasant life insurance. There are no guarantees or certainties. It’s true what they say, you only have this very moment.
