OTHER DIMENSIONS
“ist” is bad: rac-ist, sex-ist, age-ist, ameth-yst. ….and fat-ist …? Apparently the mantra is “we choose to be fat”. I doubt we do. We choose to eat too much cake, the corollary of which is to be fat – which is also bad. Boy, were there some big ones in the Mournes on Sunday. Unusually so. Or is it just that girth has become inevitable? But the fact that fatbum and his/her wobbly spouse is in the Mournes is good enough for me. Whether for their health, an aspiration for Twiggy-like dimensions or the craic, I welcome them to these magical mountains and to my bosom, inadequate as it is by comparison.
Anyway, that’s not why I am on. Thumbnail maps. They should all have a health warning. On Sunday I met the bearer of one on the way up and another at the same spot, on the way down. Both stood befuddled and undecided – undecided if they should press on to their death or ask for help. The second was a photocopy of a reasonable attempt: author, the boyfriend who was running up and down mountains somewhere and said map would keep herself happy. I gathered this from her melancholic tone. The first was buried in a beautiful little hardback book: comprising 4 dots joined up on an A7 page and a few words of encouragement. Ridiculous when you consider these mountains will kill you stone dead if you screw up. He was nodding and smiling; she was all biz – and adrift. The map had encouraged her and then it had abandoned her – and how much use is that? A fat lot. So … buy the lovely book and read it in front of a roaring log fire. For the mountains, a 1:25,000 is a much better idea.
