…I met this bloke called Mark Sheen – at a mates party in Subiaco – Perth. This bloke was a really nice fella, good to yarn to, interesting, but almost scary in a way. You see this fella – had himself a goal. He told me then that his plan was to climb Mount Everest.
Meeting people who wholeheartedly believe they can finish what they set out to do, is an amazing thing. Especially if they’re completely and utterly convinced of it. He had a sincerity and conviction about him that left me with no doubt he was going to get there, and just two days ago – I found out that he did!
Bravo Zulu Mark! My hat off to you, and to all of you other fellas out there who have set out to achive what you believed you could do. It tkaes some amazing strength and purpose to follow through and complete the tasks you’ve laid before youselves – and I’m not talking about all the ‘big things’ out there folks – whatever they may be.
Just quietly mate – I’m green with envy – not of Everest mind. As I told you a long time ago – you’d never get me up there in that COLD country mate! You set out to do something, and you pulled it off – well too by all accounts… well done that man!
I hope it’s everything you have ever hoped for – and more!
Belongum – Out!
