Lauterbrunnen Switzerland 

This was a truly breathtaking place to visit in the summer of 2015 but I have unfinished business there. The weather is known to change quickly in the mountains and we hit a rain spell which for the most part blanketed the mountains in a thick cover of gray.   We had planned a trip to the summit of the Jungfrau, which is at 13642 ft one of the main mountain massifs in addition to the Eiger and the Mönch besides it. Due to weather it fell through and it would have been a waste of money to ascend the mountain to see nothing. Initially it was very disappointing as we had waited a long time for it, but now it is more then ever a reason to return to make the success even sweeter when we finally set our sights on the beautiful mountain tops. In addition the ice palace is also on top of Europe as the Jungfrau is often referred to. Carved into ice you can admire caves and figures or have an ice cold drink at the bar. Further you can continue to the Schilthorn where parts of the famous Bond movie “You only live twice” was filmed. 

One of my most favorite memories about Switzerland was just before our departure. We walked the streets one more time that  morning and got to witness a man playing his Alphorn in front of his house. Facing the mountains and playing his melody was mesmerizing to watch and an experience we will not soon forget. (I will have to look for the video and post it another time). 



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

      1. I do as well. The mountains always have something majestic for me while the rhythmic sound of the ocean and the waves have such a calming effect on me. I believe that everything has beauty to offer in their own way and it has helped me enjoy even the smallest and simplest of things.

      2. The same here, I live close to the Mediterranean Sea and walk there daily, which I love, it is very calming. I don’t have mountains close to, where I live right now, have had, but I have nature, where I walk with my dog.

      3. That’s beautiful and I’m sure it has to be wonderful to have so close. I somehow pick up from your beautiful work and your creativity that you enjoy those things of beauty that surround you. An amazing gift not all can value.
