You know that feeling when you look out from the highest peak at a most glorious scene? It takes your breath away. You pause before breathing in, and when you do it is deeply and with smug satisfaction. Your eyes hover endlessly, and then focus
on some alluring part of the stunning horizon, travelling miles in moments to connect the formations as 3-dimensional. Then they flit again in visual ecstasy pulling back faster than light to bask in the whole again.
The fastener of smug to delight is the knowing how hard you worked to climb to that viewpoint. You wanted the vision so strongly you prepared for the journey and trained amongst the higher altitudes.
It is God stuff!!
