Vistas


Who looks at the world

from a soaring height

with a lofty point of view

sees less of despair

than another might

and understands more

of what's true.

Sue honey these photos are really awesome and so is your nehphew. I played his video and was really impressed. Great future ahead for that young man.
I also read your post about Lent and I too have never did this but my grandchildren have done it now for the last few years. You have inspired me to.
Always love coming by your site. It makes me feel good

Thanks for sharing!

Grandma Honey said...

Pics #2 and 3 are scary to me..I'm hoping that is just an illusion and those children aren't really on the edge like that. They can't be, right?

Gorgeous scenery I must say! And I think that child swinging understands real joy. :)

Hi Sue! those pictures are mighty beautiful and a perfect place to experience a point of view at the top. Your comment was so sweet , thanks for your kind thoughts , it helps me to carry on to the very end . admittedly I get more discouraged with the lack of comments but 4 more weeks till Z anyway :) .

How lovely.

I think that is so true, since I've moved to the top of my little mountain here, I feel more at peace and less worried about the little things in life...

Wow, what amazing view!! I wish I was as brave as a couple of them sitting on top of the world!! We really have a beautiful planet. I have been so lucky to have traveled and seen so much and hope I can travel so much more But without your pictures it is very safe to say I would have never seen it from those veiws!

wOW! So many comments you got on this post. It is indeed a good one and I love the poem. I know I've said it before, but I still don't know how you find and match so mnay beattiful photos to go with the poem.

I wish I weren't so afraid of heights. Wouldn't it be incredible to view those sights in person? The photographer was absolutely terrific!
