Paradise Lost and Regained

Paradise Lost and Regained

By Simon Litchfield

‘If you can’t be good, be safe, and if you can’t be safe, be good’. Why then is everything epic this and epic that these days? I’m not talking about boulderers who get a little scared half way up a Diff: that’s not epic, all that is required is a pep talk from Mr. T to stop with the jibber jabber. And I am not talking about getting a minibus stuck in a tunnel, which may have been an odyssey but was certainly no epic worthy of Homer. No, I am talking about proper epics. Proper epics are a bit like STIs. They should be avoided at all costs, they are not enjoyable to have, there is a lack of protection, you think you might die and it’s a relief when you are rid of them. The only difference is that you are probably having fun when you get an STI.
