these sneakers are made for hikin’…:-)

je me rends à Saint-Ferréol plusieurs fois par an, avec la même joie et le même plaisir comme ce matin, malgré les 8°C, ce qui m’a rappelé que “Les gens ne remarquent pas si c’est l’hiver ou l’été lorsqu’ils sont contents.”(Anton Chekhov)… 🙂 eh oui, la vie se répète depuis la nuit des temps, elle recommence et continue jour après jour… tout ce qui est vivant s’épanouit et finit par s’estomper, mais chaque arrêt au cours de not’ voyage terrestre est une étape intéressante, nécessaire, essentielle, car le sentier lui-même est un défi constant de notre existence… et chaque fois que je découvre de la beauté naturelle, j’éprouve souvent une paix intérieure… néanmoins, je sais d’emblée que seule, je ne pourrai pas changer le monde, mais au moins, je peux lancer des pierres sur la surface des lacs ou des rivières pour susciter de nombreux clapotis… 🙂

still excited and content to return to Saint-Ferréol several times per year like this morning, in spite of the 8°C, which reminded me that “People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.”(Anton Chekhov)… 🙂 well, life has repeated itself since the dawn of time, it starts again and goes on, day after day… everything that is alive flourishes, and eventually, fades away, yet each stop-over during our earthly journey is interesting, necessary, essential ’cause the pathway itself is a steady challenge of our existence… and whenever I discover natural beauty, I often experience an inner peace… nevertheless, I’m fully aware that I, alone, can’t change the world, but at least, I can cast stones across lakes and rivers to create lots of ripples… 🙂

When a new day begins… by Steve Maraboli

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

my mellow yellow December – how is yours?…

When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can – at all times, dare to be!

Have a fine day and a mellow weekend, pals!
