The Himalaya near Mount Everest are ruthless and serene, while the stars tracing above are without love or grudge. Seasonal tides of fair and foul weather wash in thousands of trekkers, and more ambitious climbers who kletter by night and day. Many reach their aspirations and many die trying, their bodies abandoned frozen on the mountains like nameless starfish stranded in finality upon a beach. The names of the unremembered can never be forgotten.
While the Earth turns the heavens seem to shower down onto the mountains and over the horizon.
