Photograph of climber descending Mt. ElbertThe descent beckons

as the ascent beckoned.

Memory is a kind

of accomplishment,

a sort of renewal


an initiation, since the spaces it opens are new places

inhabited by hordes

heretofore unrealized,

of new kinds--

since their movements

are toward new objectives

(even though formerly they were abandoned).


William Carlos Williams 

    (1883-1963)                 (from "The Descent")
