The Height ~ Black & White Friday

Today, on my way, from a distance I saw a technician climbing the tower and one other person doing something up there. Unfortunately, I could not take the picture because it was too far away. Really, I don’t know what they are doing up there, but my guess is they must be doing something related to electricity.

I just thought, what were they thinking when they were up there? Many people feel hesitant at high altitudes but there are also many people who always want to reach high places, such as climbing mountains for example. Likewise, people in general, want to reach other heights such as becoming a superstar, top leader, etc. Why do so many people want to reach heights?

I do not deny that I ever also had such ambitions, both physically by climbing mountains, or climbing career peaks, but, what is there? Indeed, I could see the path that the people below were going to take, but up there I was also shivering with cold, the wind was blowing very hard too. I admit that there are a certain beauty and privilege up there, but so is down here. Indeed, there is a sense of greatness when you are up there, but also lonely because there are far fewer people at the top than below. Can we not see the majesty of the universe at the bottom of the ocean?  Or on the abyss, or on the beach? Is not everything that has mass if it moves will move down?
