Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up ~ Pablo Picasso

Weekend 85: On the mountains

The following quotes seem to be connected.

I like the mountains because they make me feel small,… ‘They help me sort out what’s important in life.~ Mark Obmascik

Human life is far more important than just getting to the top of a mountain. ~Edmund Hillary

Getting back after a break is difficult!

Four weeks of vacation or change in location is over. We needed to be away and work on  necessary matters in the other part of the world. I was not on wordpress due to limited internet access. Slowly but steadily will visit your blogs and answer the comments on my posts. Thanks for supporting me.

Here are some images from my stay in India.

It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly ~ Bertrand Russell

Weekend 83: Hiking what else

Nature is one of the most underutilized treasures in life. It has the power to unburden hearts and reconnect to that inner place of peace ~ Janice Anderson

When weather forecast predicts a couple of hours of sunshine before a rainy week then the only smart choice is to go out and be in nature. I am presenting some of such precious  moments.

Weekend 81

After yesterday’s heavy rain we decided not to walk on tough terrain today rather chose country side for our walk with some light hiking on asphalt roads. It was cloudy with just a few light showers and temperature was perfect for a walk and especially going up hill.

While passing by the river we saw a duck who was desperately looking for his/her mate. It was just yesterday when we noticed this pair for the first time. The river is not flooding but the amount of water is none the less. The duck was making some sound but we could only hear the loud sound of the river. We stopped and watched this wonderful drama of hide and seek and were glad to see the happy ending.  The river is full of fishes during this time of the year which might have brought this young couple to this place.

Weekend walk: Simple pleasures

After a long, tough and busy week it’s Saturday. We planned a hike/walk, one of our favourite activities in the weekend.  We started just after breakfast as the weather forecast in the afternoon was cold and rain. We enjoyed our time in woods. The wild flowers, butterflies, singing birds and the lovely smell from wild surroundings was a treat to both body and soul.

May your weekend be filled with positive thoughts, kind people and happy moments.

Sacred

Today, while travelling on snow covered mountains I got answer to a question, “what is sacred to me”.

Every man’s story is important, eternal and sacred. That is why every man, as long as he lives and fulfills the will of nature, is wondrous and worthy of every consideration ~ Hermann Hesse

My second entry to showcase wonders of April 😀

On the ground we have colourful Keukenhof in spring

And over the mountains it’s still the ski season.

P.S. Due to travelling, I was not active on wordpress today .
