According to a Buddhist saying, “The flowers in spring, the moon in the fall, a refreshing wind in summer, the snow in winter- what do I need more? Every hour is an hour of happiness for me.”
Being in nature and perceiving its beauty certainly gives me happiness!
I’ve been living here for almost five months now, an sometimes I really feel I’ve entered a fairytale when I go for my morning walk!
“I let it be, this unbreakable light
So that I become one, uncomplicated and whole.”
Even in the beech forest, the first signs of spring are there.
… catches the best light on a foggy morning!
Today is Earth Day. How will you celebrate our Mother Earth this day?
When other trees are already donning their spring greens, the beech tree is still holding on to last year’s leaves. I want to tell him – and, perhaps, myself as well – “Let go of the past. Open yourself for new opportunities.” I hope that soon the beech tree will embrace the fresh green colors of spring as well!
Another wonderful morning in the forest. I hope I’ll find time soon – between work and the rain – to take some pictures again!
It’s time to say goodbye to this beautiful forest where we have lived the past two months. Tomorrow we will be moving to another temporary home, this time within Hermen’s new congregation. It’s a good spot as well, so I’m looking forward to discovering the photographic opportunities there!
