Rocky Mountain writers' highs


“Mountains, according to the angle of view, the season, the time of day, the beholder's frame of mind, or any one thing, can effectively change their appearance. Thus, it is essential to recognize that we can never know more than one side, one small aspect of a mountain.” ― Haruki Murakami

 
  To “illustrate” this photo I took in the mountains west of Boulder last week, I thought sharing a few “writers’ moments” with their views of the mountains and the writing inspiration the mountains provide would be a good start to the new week.  Happy writing as you approach and enjoy your own mountain trails, wherever and whatever they may be.
  
“All mountain landscapes hold stories: the ones we read, the ones we dream, and the ones we create.” ― George Michael Sinclair Kennedy

“Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance toward the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.” ― Harold B Melchart

“If you are faced with a mountain, you have several options.   You can climb it and cross to the other side.  You can go around it.  You can dig under it.   You can fly over it.    You can blow it up.   You can ignore it and pretend it’s not there.   You can turn around and go back the way you came.    Or you can stay on the mountain and make it your home.” ― Vera Nazarian

“May your dreams be larger than mountains and may you have the courage to scale their summits.” ― Harley King
