My blogging recently has fallen a bit to the way side but plan to improve that. Have a list of about 5 things that need to blog about so expect to get a quick succession of blogs in the next few days before it settles down again.

I am beginning with a book that I read quite a few months ago but never quite got round to blogging about: Psychovertical by Andy Kirkpatrick. After seeing him talk back in March thought I would try reading one of his books and started with probably the one he is most famous with. 

Though I am not a rock climber myself ( yet anyway) I thoroughly enjoyed his talk and the same goes for the book. What came across in the book a lot more than I expected from hearing him talk is his need to climb above all else. Knowing he is leaving behind his family and what he is going to is extremely dangerous but that need to do it. Showing that human love isn’t everything and that you can have a pull towards something else.

Would like to read more of his books and though would never be a good or as extreme as Andy rock climbing is something that I would like to try at some point.
