The Roof of the World

Nepal is on my mind. Everest, Sherpas, Kathmandu, Annapurna, Mustang, Buddhist monasteries, the occassional Maoist insurgent. Perhaps the recent media surge surrounding the 50th anniversary of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hilary’s ascent of the mountain. Whatever. I got a longing to scrape my fingers along the sky and touch the roof of the world.
