A solitary evening walk along the shores of Lake Geneva has become my favorite pastime with the advent of spring.

One of the open secrets of nature’s pace is patience. I realized this when I saw the Grand Canyon.
Sometimes the concatenation of time, place, the surroundings, the people around and experiences results in unsolved contradictions when compared with our expectations. Our minds start to delve in a veritable labyrinth of despair. I am cognizant of the fact that these contradictions are passing ripples which fade away with time. Perhaps perseverance could be our greatest asset and patience could be the lovely antidote to our restless minds. When I come across such situations, the quest for tranquility becomes the need of the hour. The best resort to retreat is nature undoubtedly.
A famous line by Keats says “A thing of beauty is a joy forever“. I realize this line whenever I look at the Alps mountains. The voyage across lake Geneva on a winter afternoon to a small romantic French town, while witnessing the snow covered Alps, was hypnotic. The combination of blue water in the lake and white snow on the Alps was a truly beautiful treat not only to our eyes but also to our mind and soul.
Whenever I hear the sound of water, be it on the shore where the waves are lashing, be it near a fountain, near the waves splashing in the lake, the ripples in a river, the sound of rain or be it around an enormous waterfall, it soothes me. A beautiful water body is not only pleasing to the eye but it also casts a magical spell in our ears.
