You can’t get good by staying home. If you want to get fast, you have to go where the fast guys are.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
Lance Armstrong

makes me tick

It never gets easier, you just go faster.
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles.

caving / May 2020
Imagine a time when Ardeche was submersed in the depths of the sea, a time when subterranean cavities and extraordinary lime and basalt concretions took shape over centuries of inexorable erosions and water infiltrations. Nowadays such places are open to the public.
