North York Moors is a beautiful area of nature in the north northeastern of England
a magnificent moorland – wild, rugged and quite hilly at the gracious way
not far to the west of the small village of Goathland
known from the british TV series “Heartbeat”
where the village and the area around it was settings
through all 17 year in which the series ran.
There the first impression was this eye-catching green bench on a hill rise
thus in the fall – don’t know if it’s easy to see in all of the spring’ green colors.

Neighbors, which neighbors..? (photo taken late august)

The moorland landscape has a calming effect on stressed city dwellers
if they don’t get stressed by this “roaring” tranquility.
All the time we spend finding excuses
can be used more wisely to test even more
all directions has several options
(no I did not drive, was only passenger here)
“Study the past if you would define the future”
(Confucius – chinese teacher, thinker and social philosopher)
“Lack of direction is the problem, not lack of time
we all have twenty-four hour days”
(Zig Ziglar – american writer and motivational coach)
“The compass rose is nothing but a star
with an infinite number of rays pointing in all directions
it is the one true and perfect symbol of the universe
and it is the one most accurate symbol of you.
Spread your arms in an embrace, throw your head back,
and prepare to receive and send coordinates of being.
Because, at last you know
that you are the navigator, the captain, and the ship”
(Vera Nazarian – armenian-russian writer)

Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge Theme “Direction“
Some want their life like a strictly scheduled travel as a non-surprising railway track
while others expect the unexpected on the very trafficed highway called the real life.
Freedom always follows with commitment and responsibility.
“I’m not a big fan of patterns – I like the unexpected“
(James Purefoy – english actor)
The weekly photo challenge – this theme of the week is “Unexpected“.
Well isn’t this so idyllic and picturesquely..?
Wherever in the world we are seeing a fishing port and meet fishermen
there is often an aroma of don’t know what
after all an aroma of fish and the seagulls love it.
There are as many descriptions as there are noses
scent, odor, stink, smell or maybe fragrance
many fishermen claim it’s the smell of cash
while the seagulls claims it’s the smell of food.
“Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days”
(Benjamin Franklin – american politician)
With the inspiration from Ailsa and her worth visting blog
“Where’s my backpack?“
this is my version of the travel theme this week “Fragrant“
Close to the beach – all the ingredients for building the sand castles ..?
If we never travel, so we understand nothing about what is happening around us,
when we travel we understand sometimes less and sometimes more.
We should perhaps seek out more contrast to our “understandings”.
