A client recently told me a story about climbing Mount Olympus in Greece. When he started the story, I anticipated hearing details about the challenging terrain, the gorgeous views, the pilgrimage up the majestic mountain of ancient Greek mythology.
Instead I heard a hilarious story about the food he ate at the hiker's hut on the mountain. Stories about keeping a watchful eye on a struggling fellow hiker, and a magical moment they experienced together, meeting a goat herder on the trail playing a silver clarinet.
It was a magical moment for me too, hearing the story of his Mount Olympus climb from so many years ago. I am grateful.
