Give your voice.
When there is darkness,
Shine your light.
When there is desperation,
Offer hope.~

5th of March was our annual tour/ski day in office. The possibilities were to join downhill or cross country ski or a hiking tour. I chose the third option. I will write and share my experience in another post. For now it’s the tree on the top.
