There are many paths up the Mountain,but the view of the moon from the top is the same.

Create (400x297)

Following the river seems the easiest at first,
Until the waterfalls only quenches your thirst.

Climbing the rocks the next easiest you decide;
But keeps pushing you back, because of the slides.

The thorny path looks like the hardest to pass
Cutting all the thorns down you reach the top last.

You could have saved time measuring the feat
Sometimes what looks the hardest way up is
The easiest to complete.

  3. It’s a Japanese saying I wanted share. Basically because of my own commitment getting to the top of the mtn. “I always seem to follow the “pathway of the least resistance.” —smile—
