Keep calm and hug a tree....

When I took this pic two weeks ago, by the side of the road,
it was very tempting to run towards this proud lonely tree
and hug it.
This image has been on my desktop since
and this peaceful patch of heaven
has dictated my motto of the past week
Keep calm and hug a tree....and in case
there's no tree around, hug your loved ones...



Quand j'ai pris cette photo, il y a quinze jours,
sur le bord de la route, j'étais très tentée
de courir vers cet arbre fier et solitaire
et de l'étreindre .
J'ai gardé la photo sur le bureau de mon ordi
et ce petit coin de terre paisible
m'a inspiré le mot d'ordre de la semaine
Rester calme et étreindre un arbre...
et dans le cas où il n'y a pas d'arbre,
étreindre une personne qu'on aime...


Have a wonderful week end
Passez un merveilleux week end

The location is so idyllic and tranquil. Great job on the photo. If only I could escape to that kind of place after a hard school day. :P
