years of hoping, dreaming, contacting China's leaders for permission....I somehow forgot one of my biggest fears....my fear of heights!
For decades I ran everyday, worked-out with weights, challenged my body in every way possible. I ran steep inclines
and long distances; I climbed rugged hills and mountains in rain, breathless heat, even snow, yet--never once--did I think about The Great Wall's extreme height!
The Wall was built, centuries ago ,over some of the tallest mountains in the world
yet....I was too busy preparing for my greatest challenge...ALL THE WALL....to worry about my fears!!! In 1990, when China welcomed me inside their country to make my Great Wall Dream a reality...it was too-late then to let any fear...interfere... with the
journey of a lifetime!
Soon, I'll take you "along" as we revisit my Great Wall of China adventure...together. This Fall, my next book...a picture book documenting my first-ever journey of The Great Wall of China... will be published. I'm so proud;
my book is truly one-of-a-kind. Naturally, the name of the book is: ALL THE WALL.
I believe--- As we get older and look back on our lives....it won't be all the things we did we regret--so much--as all the things we didn't do.
is patiently waiting for us....at every age....so.... come on! Let's make living-- fun!
