then providence moves too

Came across this quote recently. And it resonated with me.

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

– W. H. Murray, from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951)


in the back seat window

It’s been a while since I last made a blog post. Time has been a rather scarce resource lately. ^^. I think back fondly on the time when I was still within the confines of the university walls. Those were the days. I had a lot of time and I pursued my share of interests. Grownups used to tell me to value my time as a student as I’ll miss them when I join the rat race. I now see the wisdom in that. It seems that I’ve joined their ranks. I now find myself trying to impart that bit of wisdom… How the tables have turned. ^^.

Oh. And by the way, anyone thinking of making a trip up Mt. Fuji this year?
