“O, Wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?”

Yesterday was yet another weekend, and I had no special plans…still everything seemed like falling in place :D

"When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it" ~ W Clement Stone

Sun was bright and shiny…after a fresh warm shower…I just came out at the backyard…and felt its been ages…that I got a time to look at the flowing river …the water is showing the ripples coming in and disappearing away…and the sun with its shiny rays…just tries to tickle your eyes…I was just lost in those waves…mind was totally at its meditation…!

"Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit" ~ Jeremy Taylor

It was a good day…and I could really feel spring has sprung : D finally!
Spring is nature’s way of saying,” let’s party”! ~ Robin Williams

After that….it was me, my camera and my car :D….it was a traveler in the neighborhood just trying to catch up with those beautiful mountains …and my road map was those mountains and directions were the roads :D

"The mountains are calling and I must go"

Is it so small a thing
To have enjoy'd the sun,
To have lived light in the spring,
To have loved,
to have thought,
to have done ~Matthew Arnold

I am adding pictures and it will speak what my heart and mind is not able to put in words…the moment when you feel this is dream and you want to enjoy fully without uttering word…I become emotional when its nature…I remember those days when I used to go for hiking and grab those jungle fruits…which were wild still sweet to eat :D!!! Watch out for the show ;)

The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created spring ~ Bern Williams

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems

Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift ~ Albert Einstein

Beyond the mountains there are mountains again!

Everything is the product of one universal creative effort. There is nothing dead in nature

Nature is neutral

Nature is an infinite sphere whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere ~ Blaise Pascal

There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds

“Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mountains cannot be surmounted except by winding paths.

“He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary” ~ Friedrich N

Faith will move mountains

“Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility”

Woo too good picture and nice description of early to nature views! to construct a tower that could peirce the clouds.. go to mountiains and erect a small wire that wouldn't be a tower without foundation??..

however in this case mountian will become the foundation isn't so??

'Faith will move mountains' . . . and so will mountains move faith.

It is breathtaking to take a turn in the road and see mountains loom ahead.
