My Best Photo 2010

by Jay December. 17, 2010 4789 views

As I stood on Mt. Säntis in northeast Switzerland, looking at the “little” man crossing this rocky ridge between me and the splendid Churfirsten, I thought how lucky he was to be there.

I crave solitude and being high above the busy-ness and confusion of the world, while looking down on the beauty that actually, truly is this earth on which we live.

Whenever I am high up on a mountain or in a plane, above it all, and the earth seems so “other-worldly” below, I imagine a Mother Earth, who is, instead, as peaceful and happy and splendid as the abundant art-work she has created for us to live in.

My hope for all of us in 2011 is that we will say “Enough!” to the evils that are trying to consume our global community of nations; that we will lay down our desires to blame, and will truly find contentment and happiness and sense a greater feeling of the glory, together, of that which is this beautful earth.

great choice for your best! Glad you pointed out the man walking because I would not have seen him otherwise. Looks like you are on top of the world. Are there trails to get there or were you needing to climb rocks?
