Slowly But Surely

This elderly woman won my heart in the challenging terrain of Sheung Wan. She climbed the flight of stairs with vigour, stopping four times to rest before continuing, slowly but surely. I was at the bottom rooting for her, feeling emotional and filled with admiration. She seemed very much a local, and I realised this moving up and down the slopes of this place she called home may be a daily chore for her. This photo showed she conquered the stairs, and life. No matter how hard, she keeps moving.
