May 15 & 16Good Bogey, Bad Bogey
At the age of ten I climbed Eleventh Mountain for the first time alone. My parents had constantly encouraged me to become independent, both by word and action. My father had guided our family on the first ascent, and I could not resist the urge to do it alone. I remember rationalizing it was not disobeying as long as I never asked permission. It was just another adventure.
I climbed it often enough to make it a tradition, sometimes with friends, but often alone.

My parents initiated freedom to be independent.
Mr. Jordan encouraged me to write. (but that’s another story)
Eleventh mountain gave me the peace to be myself.
