We had a bipolar winter;
Greenland at the beginning,
Antarctica at the end.
I see your photographs and drawings.
I hear you tell your stories.
I ask you what you make of our adventures,
concerned about your future.

It had a profound effect on me.
I feel so insignificant.
Does anything I do really matter?
If so, to who, for how long?
It takes the pressure off.
I feel free to live the life I need
to live, no matter what.
