I skim the water surface, yet I reach for the skies.
I champion whatever the ocean can muster against me.
The beach is my finish-line, and I beat the waves to it, every time.
I am a surfer, and this is my #AliveLiving.

As we spend our lives climbing the ladder, they free-fall from 15000 feet.
When we open the windows for some wind, they travel 200 km/hr in the air.
While we yearn for a break in our lives, they simply pull open their parachute.
They are Skydivers, and this is his #AliveLiving.

#AliveLiving: Apa Sherpa
As we limit ourselves to climbing stairs, he conquers the greatest peak there is.
When we watch the sunrise from our rooms, he seems to hike higher than the sun.

He is Apa ‘Super’ Sherpa, and this is his #AliveLiving.
