Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“I love climbing trees. One of my favorite pastimes during my Parkour walk [<link; short read] is what I call tree-climbing snacks.“
“What are those?“
“It’s a little game I invented for myself. The rules are simple:
Pick a tree.
Pick a branch at height. The goal is to climb and touch that branch.
Bonus points if…
– you don’t take the same route if you’ve climbed the tree before
– you don’t take the easiest route
– you spend a few breaths at height until your heart normalizes – expand your awareness for a beautiful little Zen moment
– you come down on a different route
