[5]have seen the number - but in case you have not - I give the quotation.Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.Isnt that fine? I like it but have never climbed a mountain - Our Seattle friend is enthusiastic in climbing and a lover of nature - and is interested in your writings.She hopes some time to go with the Club - in a summer outing and mountain climbing. if she may have the pleasure of joining them.
