Hey guys! Shake it up! Time to get on over to Bozo's pad in Mumbai and check out what's going on this weekend! Have your human click on Bozo's picture and sign you in and let's see what's been happening this week!
Things have been kind of dull around here this past week, no neighborhood doggie parties and Mojo and I just sulked around the house, hoping someone would come up with something fun for us to do!
No one seemed to even care although Mom did get us a couple of rawhide chewies, but you know those don't last very long!
Then Mojo started talking about Izzie and last summer! And how much fun they had!
B O R I N G!!!

Well, as usual for this time of year, shadows are sometimes hard to come by and as the winter slowly moves along I find myself longing for a little more sunshine so I can have more shadows to play with. But what the hey! we make do with what we've got!
Here's then ....
And now .....

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. ~Kahlil Gibran
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. ~Confucius
As we grow old, the beauty steals inward. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wisdom is the abstract of the past, but beauty is the promise of the future. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

The moon is like a mystery novel, the sun like a motivational self-help book, and the stars a coffee table book of photography. The sky is the whole library, and God the librarian. ~Pepper Giardino
The last picture(show)
by the window,
of life as a little girl
thieves and robbers
with her brother....
thieves and robbers
as she sits,
head to toe
a veiled life.
The eyes dart
a sliver of light
she rubs her eyes
No one is around,
just she herself
a dark, cloudy
into the night,
the clouds smile and part,
the moon beckons,
swimming in an ocean
She lifts the veil
feasts her eyes
on the stars;
Life must change,
she has seen
the guiding light
in a dark sky........

Sky Watch is hosted each week by Klaus and the Sky Watch team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and myself. Click on the icon, sign up and join the hundreds of people from all over the world who share their beautiful skies each week. Please do read and follow the directions before signing in.
Our skies were pretty much in keeping with this time of year -- more gray than color, more plain and ordinary, but then that is what makes the flaming skies all the more appreciated when they do put in an appearance. Still, there's something very peaceful about the skies I caught last evening. Click to embiggen and see more detail.
“Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Lord, I have loved Your sky,
Be it said against or for me,
Have loved it clear and high,
Or low and stormy
-Robert Frost (1874–1963)
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. Rabindranath Tagore
“The Sky is the daily bread of the imagination” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were looking through the gates of Heaven.” John Lubbock
