In these days, as the nights get longer and the days shorter, I like to remember the time back a year ago, when we were together in Canada to discover the uniquely beautiful nature. And we were able to spend so many wonderful hours and days together, that we look back with joy and gratitude on this blessed time. My eldest son stayed in Canada for a other 6 months and did not return until February this year. In that time when he was in Canada, close friendships developed. His longing for the country and his dear friends was so great, that he went back to Canada this summer again, to meet there his friends and the beautiful nature again. This picture was taken at this time and I am so grateful to my beloved son, that I am allowed to share it with you, dear friends. Thank you very much Jonah. (Sometimes it seems to me, that my son and I can see such natural beauties through the same eyes. I would have captured this beautiful lake like him. I am so happy that we both have so much joy in nature and the passion for photography, to experience and share with each other the wonders of creation.)
I have tears in my eyes, because I too would like to return to this breathtakingly beautiful country with its fantastic landscapes. It was one of the best times in my life.
Thank you so much my dear friends, for take part of my personel journey and my deep feelings for this wonderful nature and also for the people who belong to this beautiful country. The indigenous people there deserve our respect and recognition. I am so grateful to have stirred the spirit of freedom and peace there. I was never as close to my childhood dream as I was in Canada in these days. I'll come back, God's willing.
To the picture: Peyto Lake is a mountain lake in the Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. The lake is fed by glaciers and is world-famous for its eye-catching turquoise color. The photo was taken in the early morning hours. This location is one of the most beautiful viewpoint you can have there.
A prayer of peace
May we seek the truth, and speak it quietly.
May we listen for truth in the words of others with open minds and hearts.
And may we always remember the peace that may be found in silence.
(From an Indian prayer)
