I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. Nelson Mandela

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.” 
― Nelson Mandela

  1. What a beautiful vista. I love the wildflowers and plants you've brought out in the foreground. I also think that the quote hits me on a personal level.

  2. Thanks. I completed my charity walk of 100km in 28 hours. This was one of the views at the top of the hills. It was these vistas that kept us going, despite many more hills to climb....
