Bigness, Vastness, Immenseness

There is something bigger than fact: the underlying spirit, all it stands for, the mood, the vastness, the wildness.

~ Emily Carr

There’s something about mountains, their mammoth proportions diminishing all life on earth. Mountains figure prominently in literature and song, as both awe-inspiring giants or cold-blooded killers, either sending souls into rapture or clutching their chests in fear.   Why else would climbers –  fool-hardy or intrepid, depending upon your point of view – ascend Everest?

Great things are done when men and mountains meet.

~ William Blake

[Note:Today’s word/photo prompt is  “Big,” as in Vast.  I am doing a sort of photo challenge at WordPress.com to get back into photography, which has gone on the back burner since I’ve had so many vision issues.]
