And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul ~John Muir
In the woods, we saw many birds and a busy woodpecker. We were so busy observing his rhythm that I didn’t take photo.
We are lucky that mountains exist; we are lucky that we have such beautiful sanctuaries on earth where we can enjoy utter silence and heavenly rise!~
Each positive thought is your refuge and your sanctuary, where in that thoughtful moment, you are safe.~
The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us. ~Ashley Montagu
Yesterday we challenged ourselves to try another place. We climbed 600 m above sea level and walked around 12.5 km. We were happy with results and the beautiful view from the top even though it was not exactly as per the original plan. I guess finding plan B is life 😎

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. ~
The sculpture “Piece is a Promise of the Future” made by artist Håkon Anton Fagerås, from Bø in Telemark, Norway, was reveiled august 6th 2006. 60 years after the United States released the atomic bomb over Hiroshima.
The sculpture is intended to be easy to interpret, provident and symbolise Northern Norwegian optimism. By appealing towards kids, it symbolises playfullness, future life, survivability, and with association of the message from Hiroshima.

Knowing our strength is not impossible. ~Six word Saturday
Yesterday was a fantastic day, we achieved something great. It was last sunny day before a wet week so we decided to go on hiking. It was a day tour and we hiked up to 919 m above sea level while covering 17.5 km distance in total.
At home we are working on our “terrace”. Terrace decking is finished and painting is going on but we didn’t want to miss the hiking opportunity. We didn’t have a lot of rain in last couple of days so the mountain trail was perfect for hiking. The route was well marked (which means one has to keep eye on wooden stumps, trees, and even the stones in the forest). There were some wet places but managed them in good way. Just that our shoes need good washing 😂😂😂
And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling. ~Shanti
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.~ Rachel Carson
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads. ~Henry David Thoreau
Security – Friday fun.
Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos — the trees, the clouds, everything.~

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. ~Henry David Thoreau.
