Life Right Now

Life right now is quite different than before. March 6, 2019 brought a frightenly fast pause to everything I had going on. I was training for my first 8000m mountain in the Himalayas, working out at my highest level... complete happiness that everything was falling in place. Until I had an accident that resulted in me, unconscious and alone, passing the night above 6300m (20,600ft). Lucky to be alive, I'm currently putting life back together, healing a body that suffered severe frostbite, processing what life could be like with shorter fingers on my right hand... and stumbling along, but with my head up, on a long road to recovery.
