You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain;
I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.
As the peach-blossom flows down stream and is gone into the unknown,
I have a world apart that is not among men.

– Li Bai

If I ever got to choose a place to spend a retreat, I’d take this one – life is probably very harsh in winter and you’d almost need to be a hermit to want this kind of isolation, but… oh, the beauty surrounding you… (June 2017)

Coming down late afternoon, the clouds part to let through some sunshine in the distance and the surrounding trees light up with a magical glow. (Jun 2017)
