There are times when I feel I am much closer to God.
That is when I walked in the wilderness, climbed mountains, facing an open sea or hiking alone.
Spring has brought with it many foggy days.
The temperature has been fluctuating. Warm air comes, bringing in moisture from the ocean.
Only a few days later, the temperature drops and the cooler air from the north penetrated.
Have seen some fantastic pictures of this place with only the tops of high rises appearing above the fog but otherwise the whole place is covered.
This reminds me of my hike up the South Korean mountains a couple of years ago.
The picture, taken in South Korea, has been turned into a B&W so that it is more moody.
Please enjoy :-)
I like fresh flowers scenting the air.
I have not been writing anything on retirement or old age for a long time.
The recent surge in the number of readers reading my post ” Early Retirement= Early Death?” https://retireediary.wordpress.com/2012/04/17/early-retirement-early-death/ urged me to write instead of only posting photos.
For sure, I am stepping into the Autumn of my life. But are we not just the Autumn foliage, colorful and beautiful, before Winter finally arrives?
Here is also a Video passed to me by a friend – ” The Secrets of Old Age” which I found very meaningful and which I would like to share : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgBF3sIPm4c In summary, the secrets of old age are:
< 3 Photos>
The first one was taken in a private property in Okinawa, Japan. I must admit my initial focus was on the red flowers. My attention was subsequently captured by the stone walls which when put together with the plants and flowers seem to make a good picture.
The second photo was taken in a holiday resort in Langkawi, Malaysia. I was impressed by the architecture of the resort building. The slightly sloping stone walls add a lot to the elegance of the building.
The last one was taken in Chongqing, China. The wall was entirely covered by a mural depicting some history in the past. Apart from a door opening on the right hand bottom corner, it is somewhat difficult to understand it is a building.
Please enjoy :-)
