The stairs provide a unique experience for each person. There is mystery in this; the difficulty and the length of the journey is determined in advance. Some count each arduous step on their way to the top. Others follow in the steps of those who have traveled here and trust in the stories offered as hope. There are those who view the trip as a challenge, to be the first one to finish. Wise participants reach the top, while unfortunate ones fall by the wayside. Some will be given aid by strangers, who on their way to the top, extend a hand to help the fallen. A lifetime is a suitable length of time to complete the journey. Happy are they who enjoy the climb.
