There is nothing which called me more than the Swiss mountains. Nothing more beautiful-more splendid, more idyllic, nothing which holds more grandeur than these!!
And I thought, you must be able to absorb such beauty into who you are and I thought that I could be a more beautiful person by taking them in. Here are some scenes of what I remember:
The Swiss blue hue, their pristine-ness, their jagged, but friendly cliffs. Their expansive ranges, their close up view-their fog, valleys, snow-capped, or bald peaks. Their simple yet complex beauty. The stories they tell you. Their rivers, waterfalls, glaciers, their Swiss cows dangling their chorus bells. The time they soak up in your eyes.
Andermats lime green.
Their inspiration for life.
In a moment of white silence in Gimmelwald, they mix power with calm.
Their seal trunks and fresh air and most soil and fall colors and green pastures and changing paths that lead up and up and up to lilacs and homes to caterpillars.
Their drooping evergreens, and springs of clean water.
Here is where everything beautiful is: the potential beauty.
The hidden and unbelievable, the quite and perfect
they teach the feeling of good. J
