Motivational Monday

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover.

– Mark Twain

I used to call my monday posts “Quote of the week”. I changed it to “Motivational Monday”. Under this section I will post a motivational, inspirational or funny quote of a person regularly every Monday. Sometimes we need something positive to start the week, something which reminds us why we live, laugh and love. In this way I wish you all a good start into the new week.

Spring is coming ..

Spring is coming ..

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

I took this picture in Punakaiki/New Zealand early in the morning when I just got up. Punakaiki is best known for ist Pancake Rocks and blowholes. Where the Name does come from?

It’s a great viewing spot over the west coast of the southland and if you’re lucky (just like me that morning) you can even see the top of the mountains of the Southern Alps. I was completely alone this morning .. just me and the sound of the waves. A great ‘beginning’ of a new day.
