Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us!  We had the same come-and-go sun this week and none of it enough or for long enough to be able to catch any reflections! SO --- yeah, last week's actions all over again. Hope you all have a lovely weekend with SUN!

We hear nothing so clearly as what comes out of silence.  — David James Duncan

There are two ways to spread happiness; either be the light who shines it or be the mirror who reflects it.
-Edith Wharton

Seek the wisdom of the ages, but look at the world through the eyes of a child.

I really try to live Ron Wild's words... It's humbling. Yet so joyful. Wise reflections today, Sylvia. Hope you have a sunny weekend too!

Sea, dog and ship, that was a whole journey! The frames make them look so much more too.

Yeah, we all have the eyes of the child somewhere but they are just hidden so often.

tapirgal said...

All wonderful shots, from sunset to dog. Looks like the Lady Washington, and a lovely photo of her, too.

Elisa said...

Your pictures are actually wonderful :)
Heve a nice weekend

Woody said...

I can relate to the lack of sun. Our lack of sun came in the form of snow, all 15" of it!

maiaT said...

These are all very beautiful photos, so different but pleasing, each in its own way.

Lovely weekend to you too Silvia.
We have sun this weekend and all what comes with a clear winter sky: very low temperatures.

Cildemer said...

Fabulous shots and quotations!
The last quotation is my favourite, and I love the first pic. Your sunsets are always sublime;o)

Mama Zen said...

These are lovely!

James said...

Three great shots and the top one is amazing!

Natural Moments said...

Through the bounty of silence, the treasure of happiness and joy is rediscovered. The jewels were always in plain sight, but were just beneath the reflection of those wondrous things that were rising to our attention.

Lovely photos Sylvia. We just moved to Winthrop Wa again to enjoy the mountains and to live on the edge of the wilderness.

J Bar said...

Beautiful.

That dog doesn't look like he's particularly fond of the idea of having his photo taken...
;-D

Lara @ Uproad said...

again a wonderful series of images! the dog is adorable ;)!

DawnTreader said...

That first picture is beautiful; and of course I have to love the last one, since it's a very "DawnTreader-ish" ship!

helenmac said...

Sylvia, such beautiful photos! I especially like the Edith Wharton words about being either the light or the mirror reflecting it. Thank you.

'Tsuki said...

Nice set of picture this week again my dear... I specially enjoy the one with your dog : it is so cute !

cieldequimper said...

What Can I Say?

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.
