On top of the world – Ink on a Watercolour Moleskine

On May 21st the explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes succeeded in his third attempt to scale Mt Everest. The climb is in aid of cancer research. What makes this really remarkable is that he is 65 years old, has had a previous heart attack and surgery. Its a terrific achievement but it makes me think. I can hardly manage the stairs and this guy is three years older than me. My excuse for sloth has evaporated.
