The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life. ~
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life! ~Unknown
And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art. ~Maya Angelou
I haven’t been using my camera for a while. I am not aware of the exact reason but I guess recent circumstances didnn’t encourage me. Just yesterday evening I thought of taking it out on a walk. The change in routine got me engaged in a creative process and for sure lift my spirit.
Do something which helps you in changing your mood and brings a smile.
Stay safe and healthy.
Inspired by Becca’s Nurturing Thursday
I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.
“…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”~
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.~
A friend of mine sent this to me which I found relevant for current situation around the world.

What do we call the river? Every moment the water is changing, the shore is changing, every moment the environment is changing, what is the river then? It is the name of this series of changes. ~ Swami Vivekananda
A winter message from the river: Never surrender! Life can try to stop you, but somehow find a way to flow! ~
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself ~ Saint Francis de Sales
Becca’s Sunday Trees &
I took these images in mid July after heavy rains. Now the situation has worsened and millions of people are affected due to monsoon rains.
It breaks my heart seeing flood- affected people. Please pray for these people.

Whoever has learned how to listen to trees no longer wants to be a tree. He wants to be nothing except what he is. That is home. That is happiness ~Herman Hesse

July is the month of midnight sun in Norway. Due to the high mountains we do not experience the fantastic view of sunset – sunrise but anyways it doesn’t get dark at night in late june and july.
Here are some images from our late night walk along the river yesterday. It was very warm during day but extremely pleasant at night 😀
How are you spending your weekend?
