The mountains are calling and I must go.

Warmer weather is coming. Adventures are close on its heels. I can’t wait. 🙂

So many of you have been looking for an update on the soon-to-be book. We have officially started formatting (first 4 chapters are done-done!) so hopefully we will be prepping for a release soon. There will be some fun hoopla surrounding the release, but you need to get our newsletter to be part of it. 🙂 Sign up for that here!

    All too true, Shannon. This winter has been so brutal that I’m itching to take photos in weather where my finger don’t feel like icicles! Very nice shot, by the way. This is the kind of landscape I can really enjoy: lots of texture in the foreground and lots of background layering.

      haha Icicle fingers are the pits! Especially when I’m already wearing as many layers as I can. haha

    Maybe readers might like to follow this call further with lyrics and music by people also inspired by the call of the mountains.

    The Call of the Mountains by the Swiss group, Eluveitie:

    Against the waves, with our swords in our hands
    Against the sea, with our backs to the walls
    Against distress, in the presence of our enemies
    Against the storms, roaring at our faces

    A cry rang out throughout the skies
    A beckon, the flight of the cranes

    The call of the mountains
    The call of the Alps
    The call home
    The tune in our hearts
    The song of the mountains

    What’s that stir, so blatant in our sallying hearts?
    What’s that urge, that lifted up our longing eyes?
    What’s that ring, echoing from the leaden skies?
    What’s that augur, resounding from the lyre’s strings?

    A cry rang on in the sibilant winds
    A behest, the outcry of the cranes

    The video is on YouTube:

    Kind regards to all.
