Golden light over Thimphu



Since a few days there is this very special golden autumn light descending over Thimphu.


The weather has been also here unusually rainy and cloudy allmost until now.

Usually after blessed rainy day, end of september, the sunny cool autumn weather starts here in Bhutan, with bright blue skies allmost every day. But this year even here we were influenced by the many typhoons, cyclones that battered over southeast Asia.


These days we are expecting a very strong typhoon, the 4th this season to land on Vietnams coastline, again near Danang/Hoi An/ Hue !


It is said  it arrives with 250km/h winds…oh my god ! Poor people living in these parts of the world, specially the Philippines,  but also Vietnam…

Our Eurasia team in Hue are becoming experts in disaster management !!!I hope everybody will be fine ! I hope there will not be too much distruction..that nobody gets hurt 


Today here in Thimphu weather is just gorgeous, It is cool, but not cold, and this lovely honey like golden light makes everything look so beautiful !

The turquoise clear sky, the mountain range with its autumn colors…just gorgeous !


I will be going back to Switzerland in 2 days,

I am happy and sad at the same time…happy to see my family, friends, my house…sad to leave my family, friends, my house…


Someone once asked what I am learning in our life Bhutan/Vietnam/ Switzerland


I told this person…I think I am preparing my death..the person really looked surprised and puzzled, but what I meant is I am learning to let go of what I love all the time, again and again…finding it again in new ways again and again…whenever I settle get comfortable in a sort of cosy routine…hop I have to let go and trust in love and life with the hope to be with those I love very soon again .


There is something about the quality of light, quality of the « Lichtaether »here in Bhutan !


This golden light today feels like an embrace to me. An embrace and a caress...

Next morning:

We are going for a hike ! Sending pictures later

Chilly drying

What you say deeply resonates with me. I too find comfort in the golden Autumn moods these days. Traveling back and forth between Europe and USA.
