A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it... We are too ready to retaliate, rather than forgive... And yet we could hurt no man that we believe loves us. Let us try then what love will do: for if men did once see we love them, we should soon find they would not harm us. Force may subdue, but Love gains: and he that forgives first, wins the laurel.
William Penn

Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone...
George Fox

From the French to the Italian Alps

The gate of Briançon's old city

old Briançon

Past Briançon, a new vista

We took GR 5 to get off the highway and its curves

On GR5 we got to an altitude of  2000 meters or more, well above the highway.


An unemployed ski lift in Montgenevre

I had thought Claviere to be the last town in France, but it was the first in Italy. We celebrated by singing all the Italian songs we knew.

Our camp near Cesana Torinese, after a long but satisfying day.
