Gendarmes, Peaks, Massifs 🧗🏻‍♂️🏔🔭
.
I constantly feel like I try to come up with analogies for parts of my life so I can better understand them from multiple perspectives, I think we all do this in one way or another.
.
Lately I’ve been feeling insufficient in the things I’ve set my mind to, not being faster to solve problems, getting skunked on routes, feelings of an uncertain future. It feels like I climbed up to a gendarme and was left uncertain of which way the route goes. It’s a complex and weird feeling in the alpine sense, you question if the moves to get here were correct or if you should have trended one way or another sooner. You’re left wondering if your next move might be the one that makes you fall. In any case, you’re left having only an option to either bail altogether (which sometimes is best) or to just give it a shot (which can sometimes be a coin flip).
.
I wonder about parallels in other aspects of life, these choices of bailing or giving it a shot. In another way, it’s really one choice in the same. Whenever I’ve been left saying “let’s call it on this,” it’s only momentary. Even under the exhaustion and embarrassment of leaving a peak empty handed, so as to say, I often pull my binoculars out once the vantage is such that I can reassess, and likely return.
.
Is it really bailing? Or is it reassessing things from afar? Just FYI, no I’m not bailing on my work or interests, I just think that it’s interesting to reframe things to see parallels in things you understand already. I recently had a meeting with my advisors where we came to asking “well what was the point of all that work we put in?” With an initial ping of disappointment because we didn’t arrive at our first hypothesis. Rather, we found a more nuanced result speaking to a far longer path than first thought. Such is science.
.
We stepped back, looking for the storyline of our work, the cracks in the face that give passage from snowfield to summit. I think we’ve found it. Sometimes you’re under a gendarme, sometimes the whole massif has put a target on your back. In any case, the one thing that we can do is just give it a shot, and most importantly, come home with a story to tell.
