This week’s photo challenge is Home. Perhaps the most interesting home I’ve ever seen during my travels was that of a 95-year-old monk in the Himalayas of Nepal. Here at over 14,000 feet lives the “cave monk” of Manang. He has lived here and given blessings to those who seek them for many years. Here is his home built into the rocks… View inside his home…. View looking outside from his home down to the village of Manang…. To see […]

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one. -John Lennon I couldn’t think of a more fitting photo that honors peace than this one above.

I was working on a post for Jakesprinter’s Sunday post titled “Sunrise” and took a second look at these photos I’d taken at three different times during the same day just after a fresh coat of snow. I thought they were so lovely I had to share. Sunrise Mid-day Late afternoon
Greetings from Nepal…wish you were here! Photo taken in Manang, Nepal along the Annapurna Trek, the morning after a big snowstorm. November 2010. For some reason, my mind still rests on Nepal and her eternal beauty.
Greetings from Manang…wish you were here! Photo taken in early November 2010 in Manang, Nepal along the Annapurna Trek.

The day of our arrival was the only day out of almost two weeks of trekking in total, that was cloud-covered and snowing. Thus the mighty Himalayas were unfortunately hidden underneath the clouds during one of […]
