OK folks…here it is…hot off the presses/embroidery machine…introducing my Everest 2016 logo. I designed it myself. It has three Everests in graduated sizes combining into one Everest. It shares the same colours as my Everest 2010 logo in which three prayer flags made the shape of the mountain. There is continuity and there is growth. My aim and goal in Everest 3.0 is take everything I’ve learned in Everest 1.0 and 2.0 and combine them into an effort that has me climb to a new personal best altitude, and ultimately, the summit. The right side of the design represents the south/Nepal side…the one I am climbing and the left side is the north/Tibetan side.
The lower two mountains are mirrors reminding me that there are always at least two ways to look at any situation and I can use my mind to “spiral up” or “spiral down.” They also remind me that dichotomy doesn’t really have to exist-I can be both light and dark, strong and vulnerable, happy and scared, etc…all at the same time. It has the colours of earth, sky, and fire. I want to stay grounded while climbing high into the sky while remaining true to my passion of inspiring myself and others, one step at a time.
I’ve ordered my traditional fundraising toques with the logo as well as a some t-shirts. Most of the t-shirts are spoken for but if you’re interested, be in touch as I might have your size or may try to talk you into purchasing a toque. Both will be available in about two weeks.
