Blue Sky, Blue Mountains

As a child, I was always fascinated by the bright, blue sky. 

I still love to look up to the sky. Watch the clouds pass by.  It calms me. [ READ: How we think about the choices we make ]

Some nights, I take a walk around outside just to see the inky dark sky. 

The night sky is lit up with stars that glitter like jewels. The luminous sky makes me feel that I am sparkling too - that when the stars shine down on you, some of their sparkle rubs off into you too. 

Like Ishmael Beah writes in A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier,

"In the sky, there are always answers and explanations for everything: every pain, every suffering, joy and confusion." [ DO READ: Strong is the NEW Beautiful ]

This snapshot just took my breath away after I clicked it. Even in my wildest dreams, I never expected to visit the Blue Mountains, in Australia. 

The name "Blue Mountains" comes to these  mountains aptly because of the oil exuded by the eucalyptus trees surrounding it across the deep valleys around.

It's a view that will take your breath away. I LOVED it.

Now it's your turn: Are you fascinated by your natural surroundings - it could be the stars, the trees, the ground that you walk on, the birds that wake you up with their morning song?
