about

After a while, I think this project became a fairly good resume item. It impressed admissions at NYU a few years ago, and so I got my master's degree here in the big city. I'm sure there were other factors involved in that admissions decision, but it certainly represents an experience that makes me sort of different from other people on paper. And so it went that on the week of my 300th Mount Everest entry, I was finally given an honest to goodness grownup job offer. That cosmic alignment felt absolutely right to me, although I confess that I would have gladly accepted it on my 200th or 100th week instead. Nonetheless, I am grateful. More than anything I am relieved. The search has been long, and I grew weary of it long, long ago. This song is a simple sigh of relief.

lyrics

The way ahead is clear
The way ahead is clear
The way ahead is clear
For the first time in a little while

And oh what a lighter way to feel...

The wind is changing fast
The wind is changing fast
The wind is changing
And I'm feeling it at my back

Oh what a lighter way to feel...
Oh what a lighter way to feel...

The autumn's come at last
The autumn's come for me
The autumn's come this year for me
A little bit early

And oh what a lighter way to feel...
Ohhh
Ohhh
Oh what a lighter way to feel...
