I hope the world will see a better year, 2016, with peace and love in heart and mind. And I hope for a joyous, Happy New Year to you and yours!
My last post this year, is from my walk in the forest today. Contemplating 2015 and what will come with the new year. The sun spilled its glory from an almost clear sky – so – what better to do than spending the whole New Year’s Eve outdoors, hiking?
Freezing cold from the start…
…with the sun trying to reach over the tree tops.
Succeeding now and then – here from the south.
We had not walked here since the last great gale, and several times the path was totally covered in fallen trees.
The untouched parts were shimmering in the low, golden sun.
Some parts remained white and slippery, and my boys had to walk slowly not to fall into the mud.
Some of my favourite ice – in Sweden we call it håris (hair ice) – and if you look closely, you will understand why. (The header picture)
Heading home again, the sun setting and the real cold returning.
2016, we do not know what lies ahead of us, we can only hope, and work each one of us to make a better world for ourselves and for our fellow passengers on this planet.
The road may be uneven, slippery, narrow, filled with obstacles…but I want to believe there is a light shining us through. Safe travels!
