Eclosion des Jonquilles dans un pâturage du Jura Neuchâtelois.
I always try not to dwell on an offense too long because the more the hurt is magnified, the peace of mine will be stolen away.
I wish that we never find any dark clouds overshadowing our life too long.

Said to be one of the prettiest villages in Switzerland, Soglio lies in the Italian speaking Bregaglia valley, a few kilometers from Italy, with a backdrop of some of the most rugged mountain ranges in the Alps. Unfortunately the mountains were under clouds after sunset, I don't know why Flickr chose the evening version on top.

Engelberg is a major mountain resort in Central Switzerland. In the Middle Ages, Engelberg was known for the educational quality of its Benedictine monastery, Engelberg Abbey. From the 19th Century onwards Engelberg became internationally known as a mountain resort, but it is today visited as much for skiing as for its Alpine character. With its combination of modern snow and sports facilities and alpine location, Engelberg is popular today for both summer and winter tourism. The nearest large city is Lucerne.
The official language of Engelberg is (the Swiss variety of Standard) German, but the main spoken language is the local variant of the Alemannic Swiss German (Schwiizerdütsch) dialect.
