Quote

I boasted among men that I had known you.
They see your pictures in all works of mine.
They come and ask me, `Who is he?’
I know not how to answer them.
I say, `Indeed, I cannot tell.’
They blame me and they go away in scorn.
And you sit there smiling.

I put my tales of you into lasting songs.
The secret gushes out from my heart.
They come and ask me, `Tell me all your meanings.’
I know not how to answer them.
I say, `Ah, who knows what they mean!’
They smile and go away in utter scorn.
And you sit there smiling.

— Rabindranath Tagore – Gitanjali – 104

    thanks for yours, shimmering underneath those of the masters you quote!
    hope your journey was plentiful.

    • Hi, thanks for your visit! 🙂 My journey was plentiful, indeed. I have seen a lot of wonderful landscapes and made a lot of beautiful pictures. And thanks for this nice comment… still keeping the blog alive every day hoping to reach 365 pictures and quotes without interruption. 🙂

    • Thanks a lot Namita! Unfortunately I did not really succeed to render the breathtaking greatness of this place. I really felt the amazing power of nature on these cliffs and the height is overwhelming.
