mountains and valleys


Snowdon, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

I had a wonderful time in Wales. This photo was taken on our way down from the top of Snowdon. I'd never been up it before and it was beautiful. It was a hard climb, with a scary ridge and some even scarier scrambling across scree, but worth it for the views from the top.

Now I'm back at work, still aching from all that hard walking and very tired. It feels like I've gone straight from a mountain top to a valley. From all the time in the world, at least as long as the light lasts, to clock-watching and alarm clocks and no time to do anything. I've got to keep plodding on until the path starts to climb again.

Mountains are so beautiful. reminds me of the Himalayas where I used to live and teach in an American International School with people from 25 countries.

Bekki, the picture is amazing. Know how you feel with having all the time in the world to being under pressure to fit everything in. Work life is tough. Hang in there. Nice to be on facebook with you too :)
