An open letter to the universe.

Dear Universe,

I know you’ve got a lot going on, and all, but can we work out some sort of deal about the weather in Red Rock this weekend? This is the first time I’m actually flying for a climbing trip, and I’ve been looking forward to our really ambitious tick list for months now. I do see that the weather forecast has improved from a few days ago, so I thank you for that step in the right direction. I’ve already learned, solidly, that life and climbing is about staying flexible and adapting to and embracing challenging conditions… so can you please, please cut a climbergirl a little slack and not rain on my parade this weekend?

I understand, completely, if that’s asking too much, and if what’s in store for me is another Life Lesson. But, nothing ventured, nothing gained. A girl’s gotta ask.

Peace, and Hana sends a snuggle,
