    I’m with Butch, its alright coming out with the mantra that you MUST keep going to keep going, but if you can’t, if it hurts too much and you have to stop, then that what you must do.
    Iím condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    I knew my torn shoulders and arms/crippled hands were gonna bite my ass eventually, one day - so I wisely let it go.

    It's not as if climbing/cutting is the only activity out there.

    Which is ok too. But I sure don't miss it one bit myself and I'm just a youngster.

    I heard an interview with a famous ballerina once, can't remember who it was at the moment but could have been https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altynai_Asylmuratova She said "miss one day you don't notice, miss two days you notice, miss three days everyone notices" She might have stolen that quote, but it's pretty right. Got to keep doing something physical.

    Pete Egoscue's whole concept is "health through motion" -- he preaches that the body is an integrated motion machine. Most physical conditions and postural dysfunctions are caused by lack of motion combined with negative compensating motion. I'm cribbing some of the better concepts and techniques (which in turn come from Yoga, but without the strong Eastern influence), and it helps me stay supple, fluid and functional despite a prior catastrophic injury. Sure helps me do this tree stuff! Well worth the 30 min a day!
