New Life

It is fascinating to hike after raining days, besides enjoying myself walking in the mist, I could see ants building their new home and I received invitation from the Babbeler.

The story on the nature continues as I move on. In this fresh and wet morning, I can read the energy brought to the forest by the rain, and the tiny green shoots that signify new life; they are supported by the slope today, they will support the slope in the future.

The story on the nature continues as I move on.

Looking at the mud on the caps of mushrooms, the power of new life is fully exhibited. They need not to be a sleeping turtle nor a Monkey King, yet the moment they burst themselves out from the ground, in scientific term, how much force is required? And they make it.

If you ask why I go hiking every week, I need no talking about physical, but I hike on a trail of wisdom. Different insight may be derived from the same thing, different understanding may be perceived from different stages of life, and time.

I really like the idea of hiking on the trail of wisdom. Not only is that a wonderful philosophy, but you illustrated your hike with great pictures.

Wow.. this post was so inspirational! Nice captures too and your narrative matched them so perfectly.

It's really great to know you hike with such noble thoughts and perspective. ^__^

fufu said...

yeah... it's good after rain... rainbow may be seen too... hihihi i saw it when i was climbing huangshan(mount huang) but just few seconds... wish it could long few more seconds so i could snap it down >.<

Ratty said...

You are very correct. The hiking does make us think of wisdom.The quiet trails helps us begin to think of the world around us.

I also like that you find the kinds of things that I sometimes overlook. While I am busy watching a squirrel hop from tree to tree, you are noticing the wonderful world of new life. From your example, I now try to stop and look at some of these things too.

If you're walking the wisdom trail how do you keep ending up at my place :)

Bengbeng: Your comment is far too long. lol...

cherie: I have been flooded with awards. Help!!!!!

George: You have your roses and waterfalls, I have my trail of wisdom. Haha...

flyingstars: I learn from your skill as well. Yours are very beautiful.

Harumi: I have some thought but not that "noble". You make me feeling like having a ring above me head. ^__^

fufu: Huangshan is a great mountain. By the way, you have very beautiful pictures in your blog.

Ratty: You are more like my buddy. Let's hike and share the experience. Cheers.

WiseAcre: Hey hey!! You are so clever to hint that trail of wisdom ends at your place. Oooooohhh....

Icy BC: The day is ordinary, but the thought is not. Happy weekend.

Time changes everything, everyone and every place. ~But not everyone notices... You are so perceptive, and that makes for some wonderful reading.
 
I like to run my trails backwards from time to time -feels like I'm on a whole new path when I do.

Good Morning,

Just wonder how each specie marks their existence, and they are very tribal and territorial. Just like fans wearing red bands across their foreheads to a Manchester United football match.

And the mud on the caps of mushrooms are little marks to show which hills they are from. Very much similar to the monkeys you showed earlier having lovely hairdo, any hair stylists would love to emulate. Also of the same muddy look!

But RAINNIE, while on the hike, better limit the mud mark only at the shoes not on your "topi" or cap!!

And don't point out why I am still around at this wee hour of the morning..... Just rescheduling my blogging time for puasa month.. haha.

Cheers,
~bangchik

Cher said...

great wisdom and insights... i bet you haven't pulled out your four wisdom teeth! lol!

CH said...

Here come the long waited weekend, Rainfield, the jungle trail was very slippery this morning.

cherie said...

hahaha - you are so funny! copy the ants then and start 'harvesting' one at a time! lol!

rainfield61 said...

Heather Dugan: Your backward run sounds like thinking out of box, is a good idea to feel a same journey differently.

Bangchik and Kakdah: You must have discovered something differently at the wee hour. Am I right?

CH: We appreciate this moment because we only have one weekend in one week.

cherie: Do I really look so funny? I have spent some times in front of my mirror, but found out I do not really understand myself.

VanillaSeven said...

Awesome trekking rainfield. How do you know if the mushroom are edible or not?

Ayie said...

we have our own ways in enriching our wisdom, it's nice to know you found yours through hiking. I usually get my piece during my walks and stay at the park or somehwere quiet and nature filled place
