The beauty in nature and in words!

Hello my friends! Well, I have been showing lately pictures from my last mountain hike and these pictures will be the last until my next mountain hike again.  Hope you like them. They are special in their own way.
In between share some words written by 
by H. Jackson Brown Jr.

The Little Rules of Life

 Sing in the shower.

Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated.

Strive for excellence, not perfection.

                  Be there when people need you.

 Compliment 3 people every day.

Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.

              Leave everything a little better than you found it.

Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
                   Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures.

Be forgiving of yourself and others.

'Say, "Thank you" a lot.

                                 Say, "Please" a lot.
                        Avoid negative people.

Remember other people's birthdays.

Look people in the eye.

Be the first to say hello.

Return all things you borrow.
Make new friends, but cherish the old ones.
Keep a few secrets.

Always accept an outstretched hand.
Stop blaming others.
Take responsibility for every area of your life.

Never underestimate the power of love.

Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation.

Compliment even small improvements.

                  Keep your promises no matter what.

                                       Marry for love.

                        Rekindle old friendships.

                              Count your blessings.

           Don't be afraid to say, "I made a mistake."

                   Don't be afraid to say, "I don't know."

 And now I am on top of the mountain beside the remains of the German airplane who crashed here on top of the mountain during World War 2

Saying goodbye. Until my next hike again.
