Drink & Drugs
Croagh Patrick. Co. Mayo
For the kids today, which, do you think is the bigger problem. Alcohol or Drugs?
And which do you think is the bigger addiction.
And which do you think is the worse addiction.
And do you think, as I do, that one can drink without ever becoming addicted?
And do you think, as I do, that one can never take drugs without becoming addicted?
I am very interested in your opinion.
I will be away for the next few days. For I will be off to climb a few mountains.
In more ways than one.
I expect you all to behave while I am away!
Here is my first mountain. (Top of page picture.) It's known as the Holy Mountain.
We're back, and two of us made it to the summit!
There were many people on the mountain and the weather was good.
But the going was tough.
And it was, literally, a constant uphill struggle!
On more than one occassion I was willing to turn back and call it a day.
But Helena, 'the Youngest', would say each time, "I'll keep going if you do"!
How could I NOT go on!
Just 11 years old, the wax still warm on her birthday candles, and full of dogged determination!
There's a lot to be learned on a mountain.
More to come.
And thank you for your views on my question.
More to come on that too.
