Dreaming of Tea Mountains

Today I awakened from a dream in which I was walking a quite steep cliffside in Himalayan tea country, trying to visit to an out-of-the-way temple on a high place, set amidst an inaccessible tea garden. I was so proud to get to the top of the hill, using handholds the last part of the journey, when I saw a grandmother with her toddler granddaughter happily using the stairs, which were just over the other side.

Undoubtedly, a commentary on my life: unnecessarily doing things the hard way, when an easier path is just around the corner.
