Grey's Anatomy. I am continually asking myself why I watch this show. Somehow, the characters have captured me, even though I dislike most of them. Anyways, as Erin and I watched last week's episode, Meredith Grey, the lead character of the show, was narrating a scene and said something that really caught my attention. I'm ad-libbing a bit, but basically she said "when we see pictures of Everest mountain climbers, they're always at the top. Always with a huge smile on their face. Looks like they're on top of the world". I love that. The "climb" is hard. A lot of people die trying, and never make it to the top. Sometimes it seems like the climb is going to kill us, making our way through this life. But eventually, in all those little situations, and in the grand scheme, we make it to the top. We're bruised, broken and bleeding. But once we're there, once we make it through the climb, it's as if the climb was nothing. Those bruises don't hurt as badly anymore. Joy takes over.
I don't know. Thought it was a cool little bit of wisdom. Thanks Meredith. Now stop having sex with everything that moves.
