Hi Slyvia,

Fantastic shots are usual.

The clouds seemed so near, we can almost touch it in all your pictures especially the 5th and 6th photo. It makes us appreciate nature more and more each day. All of them looks like paintings. Amazing photography by the way you captured the sun's rays.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
