A moment in slovakian heaven
Describing my 11th ascend of Kriváň on occassion of traditional national ascend of Slovaks to it will have to be far more a theological treatise than anything else. I heard my vocation there. Here I won't write about what I felt, I'll write about the weather.

First day after low air pressure disappears with bad weather, the skies are usually clear and visibility is perfect - also in summer, as you see here. I saw my brocken spectre from the summit, together with halo effect from below.

Thanks Jacek, I was so happy. I prayed for such a weather. God is so amazing, he did it for me and He wants something back for it. He's a good calculator :)

I wanted to make a phone call later today to check if things are all right with you, now I'm relieved. Could you send me an e-mail later sometime? The addresses I had seem not to be working. Cheers! Peter

Hi Peter, sorry for not responding to you! My e-mails are working, as I remember, you sent me a notation about new picasaweb album. I'm OK now and prepared for next trips, but first of all, to finish my studies until next summer. Cheers, Tomas :)

Indeed, first focus on your studies! Yes the email was about photos. Your work email did bounce back with a serious error message, so why I was puzzled what could have happened. Oh, digital world playes tricks with us, better do spend our time on fresh air ;)

I left work for studies, that may be the cause of the trouble with my work email :) I'm sorry I didn't go to High Tatras this september, and I doubt whether I will go some more time this year because of studies, but let's see. I will go to czech mountains more often. My possibilities grow instantly, on the other hand, I'm short of time and money. After I finish my studies in june, I plan to spend much time in Tatras, Alps, etc. in summer 2009. Next weekend comes my personal summit of the year - Ortler! Cheers, Tomas :)

OK, I understand, I wrote it like it was something bombastic. It won't fill newspapers' headlines for sure, but it's important to me. It's a secret, until it comes into being and it will last years :)

But the important 'vocation' cannot wait!
I can now see why the Polish and Slovaks
refer to these mountains as being HEAVEN.
Best of luck on your vocation and adventures!

That's an amazing profile picture, kind of like Friedrich's painting, but facing the other way :)
