(Video link HERE.) Cody Townsend skiing down a sheer face in a space between two rock walls no wider than a supermarket aisle reminded us of the narrow path that we all, at times, have to navigate (whether by choice or circumstance)…

…which made us think of Oku no Hosomichi, “The Narrow Path to/of the Interior” by Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō:

 “Each day is a journey, and the journey itself home.”
