October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations I above them once again.

One of my ‘most beautiful places’ to visit: Cesky Krumlov, UNESCO World Heritage Site, located in the Southern part of the Czech Republic. The castle and the city’s construction were begun in the 13th Century and completed in the 17th Century. The resultant architecture is a blend of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles.

The earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed…
The earth, the air, the land and the water are not an inheritance from our fore fathers but on loan from our children. So we have to hand over to them at least as it was handed over to us.
~Mahatma Gandhi~

Mine is the sultry sunset when the skies 
Tremble with strange, intolerable thunder:
And at the dead of an hushed night, these eyes
Draw down the soaring oracles winged with wonder…

There is a silent eloquence
In every wild bluebell
That fills my softened heart with bliss
That words could never tell.
