The help of sherpas would have been great here!
Parts of the path have been callenging, indeed; some places the only possible trasee has been too steep to climb! I thought to myself; I had read about sherpas in ta neighbour village; If we only could have got them here. So I thought loudly, and Jørgen got a glint in his eye and a smile on his cheeks……did not say anything……..
Next time I went for a ‘pilgrimage wandering’ on the path, I became quite emotional; There was the stone stairs… and another one with solid steps to take you up to the top……
Oh, that magical man… with his helpers! Now also a sherpa! No problem! Here they are, four strong and cunning lads: Jørgen, Erik, Arthur and Yngvar, who in each their way do a great contribution for the PATH! They saw trees, clear away the branches, tidy up and find good bends to make it better for the foot to tread….
If you have
ice in your belly
fire in your heart
an aware eye
and sharp sight
If you also have got
a fluent toungue
and reward yourself
some quietness for thinking
Then you can
move the mountain
With every great work
you have to start small
If you’ll climb a ladder
you first enter
the lowest step
