Touch has a memory.~ John Keats
We were back on our favourite tour. Moderate temperature between 5 to 10 degrees and visiting clouds helped us to keep hiking. We managed to walk 11 km with an ascent of about 576 metres in 3 hours before lunch. We could not go futher due to ice on the top.
Spring flowers are scarcely blooming and mostly on the sunny side of the valley. Though almost every survivng plant/tree showcase lovely buds.
We saw a batch of beautiful purple wild flowers,
Genus Hepatica, perennials Chionodoxa (Scilla) in the buttercup family growing along the roadside. It looks like flowers were waiting for some sunshine. Jude has corrected the name of these flowers.
Stay safe and be kind.
Spring in me
Denial demands struggle.

Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.~Suzy Kassem
Thus the man who is responsive to artistic stimuli reacts to the reality of dreams as does the philosopher to the reality of existence; he observes closely, and he enjoys his observation: for it is out of these images that he interprets life, out of these processes that he trains himself for life ~Friedrich Nietzsche
