झरना बहता रहा। 

पत्ते रंग बदलते रहे। 

हम किताबों में उलझे,

जिंदगी के मायने ढूंढते रहे।

Weekend 128: A winter walk (Pre covid)

Winter has settled in well and I do take a walk almost everyday but there is nothing new to exhibit. I checked my archives and decided to revive an old hike/walk. For a cold sunny day the weather was perfect for a long walk on the mountains. Come along folks…

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. ~ Plato

It is the beauty within us that makes it possible for us to recognize the beauty around us. The question is not what you look at but what you see ~ Henry David Thoreau

Walking gives time to reflect. Don’t rush.

The light and the hope of a life

All good things are wild and free.~ Henry David Thoreau

कुदरत की खूबसूरती पर मुस्कुराता हूं मैं 

दीवाना मैं अकेला तो नहीं।

I find weekly challenges interesting and enjoy participating in a couple of challenges every week. These challeges give opportunities to meet people, watch their work and learn about new things and places. My daily or weekly walks are linked to Jo’s Monday Walks. From last year I am also participating in Debbie’s Six Word Saturday challenge. Selecting a photo(s) and composing a six word caption for the same is a fun activity. Here I present one of my earlier entries (April 2021) to Six Word Saturday with the title “Fresh snow was served for breakfast

Lens artists photo challenge doesn’t need any introduction as we all wait for the theme every Saturday. My heartfelt thanks to the LAPC team for bringing us all together in this weekly activity.

Stay safe and be kind.

Blissful Travel – Getting back to Normal – Part1

If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet.~ Rachel Wolchin

The posts you saw last week were all scheduled. Thanks to WP. I was away. First travelled to Oslo and then to Barcelona. Attending conference post covid was quite surreal.

Oslo is ready for a pre-Christmas period full of magic. On Monday, after the sessions we enjoyed a stroll at the Christmas market in Oslo senter.

All is well that ends well.
