Peak: a trickster energy that gave rise to the elf Puck (used but used so carefully by Shakespeare, one of the few characters in his plays that is not in play) and also to sharp points that make you jump (pikes) and mountains, that move when people move and change their stories, according to light and framing. Most of the old stories of the world come from people walking and watching, carefully, the tricky peaks move and shift and change their shape and form. Peaks are a relativizing and humbling energy, that negate excesses of ego; if you spend the energy to reach them, you don’t treat them lightly. Here are the peaks of the Coast Mountains of British Columbia:
