The mountain was once flowing and overabundant with life, care, and joy.
Its strength attracted many to it, and its tender care and beauty kept them close, happy, and protected.
Then they left.
The Mountain did not understand why. It only knew that suddenly, all the people under its guard and care were now gone.
It thought “My strength is what brought them here, so if I grow stronger, they’ll return in droves!” and so it did.
In its quest for strength, it killed off most of the beautiful life on its range, turning it from a beautiful, lively mountain into a cold and barren Everest.
Everyone is Attracted to Everest, but nobody wants to stay.
