One of the nicest things about being here, is that everyone smiles and greets you as you walk about. People seem happy. I can certainly see why, living here.
Now doesn't this remind you of the Sound of Music??? Climb every mountain?
When I was going through the photos after my walk, I came across this one. It amazed me. I was sitting on the river bank at the time, just watching the water flowing by, and could not see what I was taking in the sunlight, but I wanted to capture what was in front of me. And this is it. All I can say is that it was perfectly peaceful. I was up last night, wrestling with demons in my head, and I knew I had to get out and walk first thing. Maybe this is why.
The sun drifted behind the mountain here, and it was so beautiful.
That forest on the left is the one I walked through on Sunday morning.
There is something about mountains. I know some people feel hemmed in by them, but me?? Oh no. They seem to make my spirit soar. I love the sea. But if I had to choose....... the mountains win every time. Where I live, we have neither, and that is a great pity.
If you ever come to Switzerland, make sure you allow for time to walk and soak up all the beauty. You can do a whistlestop tour, of course, but oh, how much you will miss. I ache at the thought of leaving this place.
But maybe the real reason I love being here so much is because for very brief moments in my time, I am with my sister, and can relax and know that I am not the only one facing my future. I know that she is always there, with encouragement and belief in me. And here, for a little while, I can put aside everything and just be me.
It is a good place to be.
