‘Tomorrow, it is’, I tell myself while I patiently contain my bottled-up nervousness and excitement that has driven me for days. And, as I go about the mundane chores while trying to focus on the now, the snow-clad mountains appear clear across my mind’s canvas and they stay put as I go about my tasks, one after another.
