Hate belongs no where within this journey we all walk

” Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you or insult you, denounce your name as evil, on account of the son of man. Behold your reward will be great in Heaven”.

***LK 6:22, 23b***

The son of man or otherwise known as Jesus Christ, when Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he never did so out of hate, he never even acted as if there was even any hatred as part of him, Jesus treated us all as equals and yes there are no two of us alike, so tell me who you are and I am welcoming you with open arms.

As calm and as beautiful as this picture is within Nature, is all that we could ever imagine of what to expect within Heaven. First we all have to drop all the hate, as this is what just may stop us from truly meeting Jesus within the beauty of Heaven. Jesus showed zero hate of anybody while he walked his journey here with us, hate comes from right here with us, as we are the ones that developed this hatred that is among us today. Socialism breeds hatred and the dividing of each one of us, against each other, even while the love of Jesus Christ is within the hearts and souls within us.

Hatred takes a lot of work everyday from each of us, as love is very natural and within us all and takes zero effort to spread it with all who is around us. Why this hatred has spread among us today, I really have no answer for this, because this is not truly of who we are and it is not of what Jesus taught us along his journey with us. I get the fact that we are all very diverse of each other, but this diversity should never be of what divides us so, we are all very unique to each other, which when we bring forward our uniqueness, then we can move forward better and stronger, out of the love of Jesus, with zero hatred anywhere along our paths.

When those among us call us names, hate on us, or simply exclude and insult us, only means one thing of those who do this, which is the fact that these Individuals have zero self esteem of themselves and have zero belief or faith in Jesus Christ our savior. If only these Individuals could have any faith in Jesus Christ, then there could be hope for us all as we walk our paths of this journey through life, so we all can be in the peace of God, with nothing but true happiness at every turn of the journey.

The love of God within us all will warm us so,

The belief and faith in Jesus will give us much hope,

As we all search for the entrance of the pearly gates to Heaven,

Let us forever end the hate, to share the love that is within us all.

” Hate is the ugliness that surrounds us today, love will always turn the ugliness into great beauty”

” Socialism is nothing but hatred and division and is truly of who we are not”

” Love is within us all with great beauty and warmth as through love there will never be any hatred”

Leave the hatred in the rear view mirror

” Through hatred we will always be checking the rear view mirror”

***BowlingChef***

Hatred is Satan taking over control of who we are, when we control of who we truly are, this is how we accept and recognize Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls. Nothing ever came out of hatred, except maybe ugliness like we see around us today. To look at what hatred does, all we need to do is, look back within the history of Mankind, to a point known as the Holocaust, this is what hatred does and nothing good ever comes out of hatred, not too mention the fact that some of us think that, Socialism is the best thing since the invention of the car? I got a news flash for you, just look at what Socialism has done to the country of Venezuela. Okay maybe some think it will never happen here in America? I got another news flash, Socialism is all about a one person rule, with that same person controlling all that you do, so unless we the people keep aware of whats happening, yes then it will happen here, whether you like it or not. Socialism is full of hatred and hatred is not truly of who we are. let’s learn from our history and leave the hatred behind, so we can move forward better and stronger within the peace of Jesus Christ.

Hatred comes too us in many ways, but hatred within sports has you never being able to either play or watch the sport you love. There is another Superbowl upon us, for those who may not know, a Superbowl is the last football game of the season, with the winner being the champion of that season. Over the last twenty years, there are the New England Patriots, with a quarterback names Tom Brady and a head coach Bill Belichek, who will be in their ninth Superbowl together, which is a record for both coach and quarterback of the same team, but as those who will hate on this team, will only achieve one thing for you and that is, the straight up fact that you will never enjoy this game for what it truly is and that is, it is just a game that an athlete not just plays, but truly gets to play the game they love. Anybody that says they don’t like winning, is only fooling themselves. Anybody that says they hate Tom or the Patriots, don’t truly know what the game of football is. Football is a game of strategy that is hugely all about being competitive, Tom is as competitive as they come, maybe just a bit more than another, but that is no reason to hate on him. My theory to all you hater’s is, ” You want to be a champion like Tom, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”.

Hatred has never been good or kind to any of us, it is pure Evil from Satan, that does nothing but turns us all against each other at every turn. When we work together as God wanted us to, then we will all feel that warm feeling of love within ourselves, which is the love of Jesus Christ that is always within our hearts and souls, just that through this hatred, we don’t give ourselves a chance to truly feel the warmth, as we push it so deep within, that it becomes non existent, without any of us giving it a thought, or even acknowledging it’s existence. The love of Jesus Christ is the most beautiful thing we will ever feel and know, all we need to do is, truly feel and acknowledge it, so we all can move forward without looking in the rear view mirror and walking this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

” Hatred is ugly, as love is beautiful just like the beauty within this picture”

” Hatred will have us moving backwards, as love will always have us move forward with each step”

” Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy on that day winning the game”

Rest for the Weary

” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

When we all struggle in our daily grinds and become Weary, we grab a cup of coffee, maybe a power nap to energize us, sometimes even a weekend away, but these things are just temporary for our outer bodies, what Jesus Christ offers us is, rest for our souls and we just have to come to him in order to receive the true rest we deserve.

When Jesus gives us rest, he is truly giving us peace and contentment within our souls, so we than can breathe easier, breathe in the quality air around us, as we breathe deeply, which is totally relaxing the mind, body and soul. When Jesus gives us the ultimate rest, he is giving us the confidence we need, to escape the frustration and the chaos of the World around us. Rest in him and don’t worry about what lies ahead, as Jesus Christ has already taken care of the tomorrow for us.

The forty day journey of Lent is right around the corner, a time where Jesus walked his journey sacrificing for each of us and now, as we walk through these forty days, we to need to sacrifice a piece of us, so we than can become one with Jesus, as he helps us by giving us our ultimate rest. This Lenten journey we sacrifice, will help us flush all the bad from our mind, bodies and souls, so we than can be left with good, which will allow us to breathe deeply the love of Jesus and totally relax, to get the true rest we deserve.

Sometimes as we walk through our daily grinds, we think we are getting rest and sleep, but all we are doing is closing our eyes, while the thoughts of the day still flood our heads with negativity, this negativity keeps us from truly falling asleep, as the negativity consumes us, it then controls every fiber of our being and without the faith in Jesus, we then will never be able to come to him, as we then will give up trying to come to him, so we can have hope and truly be at rest within our souls. When our souls are at rest and we can feel the love of Jesus within us, this is when all the chaos of the world leaves us, this is when we breathe deeply all the beauty around us, this is when we all can be totally at peace, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Rest for the weary is more than just closing your eyes, it’s coming to Jesus so he can clear our souls of all the chaos of the world”

” The daily grind can and will consume us with the chaos and the negativity of the world”

” The coffee, the power nap, or even the weekend away are just a temporary fix, as Jesus fixes us permanently throughout this journey”

” The forty day journey of Lent is the time for us to sacrifice, as Jesus did for us”

The making of a Legend and a Dynasty

a man wearing a football uniform: Getty

” Hello Mr. Kraft, my name is Tom Brady and the best decision this organization has ever made”. This is how Tom Brady introduced himself to Bob Kraft when they first met and now, the rest is history.

You don’t just wake up one day and suddenly you are a Legend at whatever you wish, it takes work and not just work but, long, hard, dedicated work. First you have to explore your options, try many things, til you find that one thing you not only love, but really want to excel in excellence at becoming the best at whatever that thing is you choose to be your craft.

Tom played baseball growing up, but being a strong New England sports fan, I am so glad he decided to love the sport of football. Tom’s work ethnic is second to none, he is the first one at practice and the last one to leave everyday, even when he is home, he watches film on the next team he is playing, he studies them inside and out, so he can read them like a book, then pick them apart with great passes to his teammates. Tom may be a gifted Quarterback in the NFL, but that gift came with a lot of hard, dedicated work.

Tom came to the Patriots like all other players in the league, through the draft, but Tom was drafted so far down the depth chart, that he was like an after thought that, hey maybe we can pick him up and put on the practice squad, to basically just go through the reps and maybe see what he can do? Well Tom studied the ways of the Patriots and the league to the point, when Drew Bledsoe went down with the injury, Tom never looked back and seized the day, taking the Patriots to the Superbowl and beyond.

It is not just Tom working hard to become a legend within the NFL and helping the Patriots become a dynasty within the league, that also comes from one of the greatest Coaches ever to coach in the NFL and that is, Bill Belichek. Bill like Tom eat, sleeps and drinks the game of football, he studies the game as well, giving him the knowledge, to create the most high tech playbooks within the sport of football. Now if Bill was a poker player, he would be the best, as he never shows his hand, until the time is right, which keeps the other team, not only confused, but keeps them guessing as well. Bill knows how to recruit talent, just as much as unloading the talent, when they are on their down slide. He loves a player that is not afraid to play any position on the field, as well as……..he is one of the few, that still like the position of Full back on the team and he grabs a player that is the toughest at that position, of which Devlin excels perfectly at the position of full back, for the New England.

The New England patriots the last 20 years have a legendary Coach and Quarterback, that work very hard daily, which has earned them the biggest title of them all and that is, earning the title of becoming a Dynasty within the sport of football. A Dynasty of anything takes a lot of hard work , not just for one Individual, but for many who make up that team. Bill Belichek recruited many different players through the years he has been here in New England, with the top recruit being a guy named………. Tom Brady. These two have been the common denominator on the team, with many different numerators over the years and with Bill putting a great system in place, the rest is history as the Patriots, year after year, have become the team to beat by all the other teams in the league.

” Achieving excellence in anything takes a lot of very hard work and doesn’t come that easy”

” A Dynasty is like and orchestra, with all on the same page and the same note, with a great Conductor bringing them together in harmony”

” You can’t have the dynasty without the legend and without the great supporting cast there is no legend”

” With winning breeds hatred, but if you want to win and become champion, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”

Looking for the peace within or the peace around……..




” Glory to God in the highest and on Earth peace”

***Luke 2:14***

Hope for today

We could never do for ourselves as God has done for us, when we give complete control to God, you fill us up with your peace, then you let us be an instrument of that peace, to a broken and hurting World.

When you step outside of the cities you can clearly see all the peace around us, this peace helps us to heal from the stress within the cities, as the peace of God is within us all, as we truly feel the warmth within our hearts and souls. which is God’s love giving us that peace, to move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

As we walk through this journey and at the beginning, we truly believe and have faith in God with his son Jesus Christ, this is what helps us grow healthy and become a productive part of Society, but as we walk further we then drift away from God and his son, then leaving us open to all the ugliness and hatred that comes with a Society. We then later learn that Jesus Christ has never left us, just that we lost the control which God uses to guide us safely. The peace of God is always within us, we just have to acknowledge it, to truly feel it, which gives us the warmth of his peace that flows through our hearts and souls, bringing out the love of Jesus Christ for us all to be happy, as we then share it completely with each other.

All the hatred and the ugliness that is around us, only comes to us because not only have we lost the control that God uses but we have also lost the faith, which then gives us plenty of hope, for all we do as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Jesus doesn’t pick and chose who he loves, as he totally loves each one of us equally, no matter of who you are. Now as we lose the control and the faith, we then ignore Jesus Christ, as he would never ignore us. Now we may think that Jesus will never forgive us for the error of our ways, but he will always forgive us no matter of who we are, or what we have done? When we don’t truly forgive ourselves, then we don’t give Jesus a chance to forgive us and that is when the faith becomes lost, leaving us spinning out of control and further away from God and his son Jesus.

It is very easy to believe and have faith in Jesus, the hard part comes when each of us wander away from him, as we then let the greed, the ugliness and the hatred control us, instead of us having complete control for Jesus, as he then guides us to the true path of righteousness. Jesus will forever love us, as his love will never wander away from us, it is only us that don’t acknowledge his love, which then leaves us cold inside and open to all the hatred and the ugliness that is around us, throughout this journey of life.

” The love of Jesus Christ will never fail us, it is we who fail ourselves”

” May the peace of Christ always be with you, so we can heal from all our troubles and pain”

” The peace within is Jesus filling us with the warmth of his love, the peace around is the beauty we see of Mother nature and all it’s tranquility”

The True Christmas Spirit

           Just as this little tree is growing within this old tree stump, the True Christmas Spirit, grows deep within each of us, so we can become healthy, while we share the love of the Spirit with each other, moving forward throughout this journey of life. 

            The Christmas season is a lot more than just going to a store, fighting off the masses, just so we can buy the perfect gift, is there really a perfect gift? The only gift that should matter during this special time of year is, the gift of ourselves towards one another, especially those who are closest to us and are our Family, for whom we have a special bond, that we built a strong family foundation, that truly lasts the test of time. When you truly feel the warmth of the love of Jesus deep within your soul, then your heart will always be filled with this same warmth, especially when you truly have the faith in Jesus, as when he came to us, walked his journey truly showing us all that this love really exists. Jesus walked his journey with nothing but the faith of his father, the God that created us all, so we can walk our paths of this journey. With God our father, Jesus is our brother, teaching us that with faith, good will always win out over evil, leaving us all within peace and happiness always, throughout this journey we all walk. 

                  Now that we all decorate our tree’s, string the lights and get within the Christmas Spirit, Let us all truly feel the love deep within ourselves and not only share this love, but truly extend this love to last all year………….Every year. Through the love and faith in Jesus Christ, we all can walk in the peace and happiness always. The true Christmas Spirit doesn’t have to be just part of a season, as it can be very much a part of the journey we all walk, the Spirit lives within each of us, just we have to truly feel it, with complete faith in Jesus as well as ourselves. If we can beautifully decorate the Christmas tree within our homes, then we should easily, decorate the tree of love within us and feel it’s warmth every day of every year, throughout all our paths of this journey through life. 

                     Christmas is not that time of year to be spending within a store and waiting for inspiration to strike for the perfect gift. The perfect gift is already within us, maybe let the inspiration strike with a special hand crafted, made by yourself gift, that will Trump any gift, within any store. Inspiration can come from anywhere and when it does, plus when we just let the inspiration mix with the love within us, then we can create anything, that will totally help with spreading this Christmas cheer, not just throughout us all, but throughout all our paths, of this journey through life. 

” The true Christmas Spirit lives within us all and all we have to do is, truly feel it” 

” May we all truly feel the true Christmas Spirit and spread it totally throughout our paths of this journey through life” 

Twas the night before Christmas and not a creature was stirring, as we all wait for that special person to visit us all” 

” Santa Claus lives within us all, as we truly feel the warmth of love and unleash it to all for who is around us” 

I am Offended!!! Time to grow up.

” What is offended? Someone who is hurt, annoyed and disgusted. Your feelings become hurt by something, so you then become offended by anything that reminds you of that”. 

” Like the movement of the #meto, this movements had great intentions at the beginning, but when someone in the movement is offended by anything having to do with sex, but then goes to a rap concert, that sings about Gang Rape? Then what really offends you”? 

                                                                                  ***BowlingChef*** 

                    Seriously…………. We of this Society are so screwed up and become so easily offended by anything, time for us all to simply grow up, fix what we need to fix, so we all can move forward better and stronger along this journey of life. Just because something or someone has come across your path and disrupted your journey, doesn’t mean you should disrupt the journey of everybody else? We all have feelings, we all react  differently to the same things, but we should never let these reactions, have an affect on all those around us. 

                    We all have been hurt by something or someone throughout this journey of life, there is no one exempt from this. The problem then lies with each of us and what we do with this hurt? What is the proper way to end our pain? Do we bury it like nothing happened? Or do we take corrective action to be better and stronger moving forward? I think the latter is better, so we can fix what is needed to continue moving forward throughout the journey. True that if only we fix our own issues, than just maybe? Whatever that has come to you and reminded you of a past traumatic event, now that same event won’t effect others around you, as you now become offended of everything, instead of fixing one thing, which is a lot easier to fix one thing, than to multi task at many things all at once. 

                     Now I don’t know about you, but almost all the time when all this stuff we are offended of comes to light is, right around one time of year and that is the Christmas season. This is suppose to be the most magical, the most loved, but yet we are so troubled during this time of year? You think it is time we all take stock in our lives, do sort of an inventory of ourselves, to not just clean out the old, but fix and repair ourselves, so we can move forward better, move forward without anymore hidden hurt, bringing us much pain. It is pretty sad that something from one generation, which was all good, now suddenly offends the new generation, which now has us all changing what was, to what is, so we can not offend who is around us. 

                       Love…………………Love is the answer to all the questions, especially the questions of us being offended by whatever crosses our paths through this journey of life. When we love each other instead of hating on one another, then there is no talk of being offended by anything that may cross our paths, when we become hurt and feel real pain of anything, then through the love we take a step back, fix what we need to fix, so we then do not suppress anything deep within, which will most definitely rear it’s ugly head once again later on at some point of this journey. We all need to be more sincere of this word love, this is a special word with a special feeling deep within us all, it is not a word to be thrown around loosely, like it is a word without meaning. We throw this word around so much and at everything we see, that this word has totally lost the true meaning it once had.   

                        You think these people that are talked about in this picture, are worried about being offended? Exactly right, these people were too busy working hard, to build themselves as well as their community, so they all can move forward better and stronger, throughout this journey called life. When you become to focused on offending someone, you are now stopped, you are no longer moving forward and life is passing you by. A big part of this offended era is, Social Media. Now there are many and I do mean many Social media platforms out there, each one will have you believe that they are the best one? But what they won’t tell you is, they are all the best ones for not only creating much drama in our lives, they are also responsible for making us offended by everything, other than the platform for who they are. Everything was so much simpler before the time of this Technology explosion, which brought us all the Social media platforms, We all worked hard walking our path, so this journey could be more of peace and happiness, for ourselves as well as those around us.  When things went wrong back then, we took the time and responsibility to see where we went wrong, fixed what needed to be fixed, to move forward better, in today’s Society and within our social platforms, we have become so lazy, that it is easier to suppress, than to work at anything that is well worth the work. 

” We need never suppress our true feelings, as they will always come back later and disrupt us even more the second time” 

” Love is always the answer as hate will only compound any situation of this journey through life” 

” Social media like everything else started out with the best of intentions, but we have turned these intentions into a negative and against everything good it once was” 

The Grass may not be greener elsewhere

Migrants, part of a caravan of thousands from Central America trying to reach the United States, walk towards the U.S. Consulate during a demonstration in Tijuana, Mexico, December 11, 2018.
” Immigration done the correct way can be a beautiful thing, but to force yourself upon others, only breeds ugliness and hatred ‘.                                                                                 *** BowlingChef ***                  I totally get the fact that some of the legit Immigrants are looking for a place better than their current residence, as some of the smaller countries either just can’t handle taking care of their people, or just quite simply…….. Are taking complete advantage of them, to the point that they are just a pawn on the chess board of their country. Now with that said, we all here on this planet called Earth, walk our paths through this journey of life. With this journey comes struggles and their is no one exempt from these struggles, just that we as an Individual, have to figure out for ourselves  how to over come the struggles, so we can move forward better and stronger and to do this, we simply can not force ourselves on others and then expect them to foot the bill of our struggles.                   When we work hard and really achieve good things in our lives, it is not about these things we have, as it is all about the work and just how good we feel deep inside ourselves, when we achieve all that we have. That special feeling deep within, when we achieve success, really means a lot more to us, the problem is that, we within this Society have taken on this me against the World attitude and have lost all the feelings that are deep within ourselves.                     We all start out and end this journey the same way, even though some may think they are more special than another? The only thing that differs along this journey is the path we each take, sometimes we get led down a path and sometimes we blaze our own path, either way we are suppose to make the path we choose, as simple as we can and as beautiful as we can, so we can make this journey enjoyable and full of peace and happiness. Now the peace and the happiness may be our goal, but there is this thing called ” Life Events” that will if we let them, control totally of who we truly are. These life events may come to us from our actions as we walk our paths, but for the most part, these events come to us from those around us. The facts are the facts and there are some that, will go out of their way to control all those around them, just so they can seem to all as the most powerful of us all.                       Not everybody can achieve top positions within the company that they work, but we all can achieve greatness throughout this journey of life. just by how we walk our paths with our actions, walk our paths with much respect, love and dignity of each other, as we honor each other always. Life is funny in the way that, we get back for what we put into it, like if we don’t put in anything, then we get back nothing, leaving us to struggle, when we try to be very controlling of all that is around us, then all we get is, never to be satisfied of anything, with zero substance of anything in our lives, we are never truly satisfied with our non actions, as this breeds great inactivity, even if we think our actions are second to none, with no care for those around us.                        Now a lot of these Immigrants that are trying to come to America just might be legit, but a good majority just want to come here to sponge off of us Americans, to bring great chaos, hatred and ugliness and do not care of who they hurt with real pain? There are some of these Refugee’s that, just want to come here to disrupt, they do not want to be better moving forward and you have them becoming lazy, while they do nothing but bring the hurt of real pain, to all those around them.  ” The green grass of the pasture, just might be green where you are, but not as green where you want to be”  ” This journey of life may be all the same to us all, it is our paths that differ with none being greater than the other”  ”  ” There is a big difference between “ILLEGAL” Immigration and Immigration done the correct way” 

Faith in Jesus Christ always

               Can you see him? Look closely and with total faith, you shall see the face of Jesus Christ within this stump. The eyes, the nose, the mouth and wearing the crown of thorns upon his head, Jesus is everywhere and with total faith in him, you shall see him wherever you are. You see that is what’s wrong within this society, too many have wandered away from having faith in Jesus, as they think they can do without him? This is totally why we have so much corruption, ugliness and hatred around us today, plus without the total faith in Jesus as well as the total faith in ourselves, now we walk our paths of this journey through life, not just without a purpose, but with many troubles, whether we want them or not? 

               Jesus didn’t come to us just to walk this journey, he came to us out of love, he came to us to show us, just how to get to the path of righteousness, he came to us to show us that, no matter of what troubles you, when you hold him deeply within your heart, then there will be a warm feeling of love that will have you glow in joy and when you glow with joy, then it will permeate throughout all else who walk this journey as well, while the love of Jesus spreads like a wildfire through a forest.

               Now as we enter into another wonderful Christmas time of year, let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas, the day that Jesus was born into this World to walk his journey with us. Also with this day full of love, let us truly feel the love, so we than can spread it with each other and make this season even more wonderful, plus have it last all year, everyday.

” Through love there will never be any hatred, as there is no more room in the Inn for the hatred”

                    When we have total faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, there will always be hope for better times on the horizon, as we then will be better and stronger along our paths, to face any kind of troubles that may cross our paths. We will be better at recognizing any kind of trouble that may be ahead of us, so we than can not only be ready, but be strong enough to fight off whatever the trouble may be.   We as we walk our path of this journey, are on borrowed time, or within rented space, simply because, we to are born into this World with a new beginning and with every beginning, there must always be an ending also. We all have the love of Jesus Christ within us always, just that this thing called ” Life” can and will overwhelm us, plus it will get in our way of truly having any faith, which then leaves us with no hope, for any kind of positive future throughout this journey. 

                    None of us really didn’t lose the feeling of love within us, just that we let all the ugliness consume us so, we let life get in the way of us entering the house of God, not just to worship him, but to chat with him, to forgive us of our wrongs, so we than can, forgive ourselves to truly heal from what hurts us so. Now let this Christmas season inspire us, let this season help us get back in touch with the true love of Jesus, so as not just to warm our souls, but to truly share it with each other, to help us all heal our wounds from the pain and hurt, that has us so troubled, as all the hatred and the ugliness goes away from us and we finally walk within the peace of Christ moving forward along this journey of life. 

” The love of Jesus Christ is always within us, we just need true faith in him and ourselves to truly feel it’s warmth” 

” Jesus is everywhere and can be seen everywhere, no matter of how you look at whatever you are looking at” 

” The warmth of the love of Jesus will and can, heal us from all our troubles we encounter on our paths”

The Majestic………The Grand

                Every time I look at this hotel, I think about Stephen King’s the shining, a glamorous but yet old hotel rich in history. This hotel has been around as long as I can remember. The only thing though, I have never stayed at this hotel, when I wander up that way, I am usually staying at one of the mountain huts, or within a tent set up at my base camp, for a good nights rest by night and a good hike throughout the daylight hours.  I am sure this hotel, known as the Mount Washington hotel, has it’s own stories to tell, just like the hotel in the movie the shining, plus they both have something in common and that is, they both are surrounded by beautiful mountains and fresh air.                    When I was younger and hiking through these great mountains by day and staying within the huts on the mountains by night, the crew at these huts would embark in an after dinner story telling time and usually these stories were of the Ghost story kind, now whether these stories were fact or fiction? is totally up to the ones listening. With as old as the Mount Washington is, I am sure it to has it’s own Ghost stories to tell. Maybe one day I will stay at this hotel and totally take in the full ambiance of the hotel, including listening to the hotel itself and what it has to say, including all the old structures with it’s crackling and squeal of the hinges, when you open and close the door, but maybe the maintenance man has been busy with the grease, greasing up the old parts of the hotel?                       These mountains in the back drop of this grand hotel are part of the Presidential range, within the white mountains of New Hampshire, with all the mountains on the range being named after past Presidents and yes of course, Mount Washington is the tallest at 6,288 feet right behind the grandest of hotels in the area. The white mountains are like a second home to me, as I have hiked quite a few of them, I am also very close to being able to say I have hiked all the mountains in New Hampshire over 4,000 feet, with only five peaks left. True…………..yes I am getting older, but this beauty within these mountains, is what keeps me young and what keeps me healthy everyday. Now that don’t mean I don’t have aches and pains, especially with all the miles I have acquired on my feet, but it is good aches and pain, as I totally enjoy being outside and one with Mother Nature.                         I have also lived in Colorado for a few years and yes it is an awesome place to live, while you also explore the back country of the state. I would either take trips in my 4×4  up some quite steep and rural mountain passes, or I would set base camp and take on some great hiking as well, where I have been at the highest of my lifetime so far at 14,500 feet, up a mountain named, mount Albert. Totally different than the White mountains, each has their own beauty, as they to, like we Humans are very unique to each other. You can not compare one to another, as they both are very special places to me and within my heart forever, which no one can take that from me. We all have our own special places that we hold dear, these places may mean nothing to others, but to us………..ourselves, they mean the world us and no one can take these places from us. Plus as we walk our paths through this journey of life and with all the ups and downs of the journey, we can in our minds go back to these places, to truly have some solitude within ourselves, as we take the pitfalls of the journey and turn them into big success, to keep moving forward better and stronger, throughout the rest of our journey through life.  ” Having solitude for us is important, as it helps us heal within to be better and stronger moving forward”  ” Get out and explore, who knows you just may connect with your inner self and discover great solitude and happiness”  ” Ghost stories fact or fiction, you be the judge of what you truly believe”  ” Feeling of accomplishment will help you move forward better and stronger always”
