Climbed up this tallest peak in Oman with a friend from the Language Center at Sultan Qaboos University. It was a few days before the Eid, and I spent the night awake, looking at the shooting stars and Centaurs in the sky. It was a time for reflection, for just emptying the mind of all the bullshit, distractions, guilt, fear, and regret that piles up in the dark recesses of my consciousness. Can't say I was entirely successful. I was a bit distracted, especially after my fire went out and a freezing cold wind came burrowing down the mountain, raising every single hair on my neck straight into the air.
