SMWI*: A Vertical Life

Don’t give up on this one too soon. The location is Byron Glacier in Alaska. “Byron Glacier  was essentially a gift of unclimbed boulders sitting in a valley draped with hanging glaciers. Heaven on earth, or so I thought.” (Read more about inspiration for this video here: A Vertical Life.)

LOVE the music. It’s “Work Song” by Hozier. Hozier, 24, is Andrew Hozier-Byrne who is an Irish musician from Bray, County Wicklow. He released his debut studio album Hozier in Ireland in September 2014.

  2. Stunning – in the vista, but in the determination too. The focus, refusal to do more than nod at frustration, and keep going.

  4. I love the fierce determination of the attack and the unbridled enthusiasm of the triumph! And the music, it moves me. Made me think of the old spirituals that the work crews used to sing. I loved the music like this in “O Brother, Where Art Thou.”

  5. That is a fascinating world, one which I don’t fully understand yet can appreciate. P.s., loved the song, too!
