she said


She was talking about a climbing wall

it looked like Everest to me 


Oh,  anybody can do it

her again, describing a difficult ski course


Marnie loved tackling new things and 

wanted her friends to try them as well


You won't know if you don't give it a shot,

she would say, when faced with our skepticism




when I found out how she died

I tried to imagine what hurdle she had met and found



I also took it to mean that

in the end, no one is really fearless
