That's My World!

That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Join us and share your world with others from all over Our World! Just click on the post title, read the rules, sign up and play with us! So! How is your world this week? Have you taken time to see the beauty there? What is it about your world that makes you smile or laugh or feel grateful for?  My world has had it all this week! Beautiful, colorful, gray and gloomy, blue and clear! All you have to do is wait for the right color! Unfortunately, I'm the impatient kind!  But here is a sample of my world this past week!!
A man begins cutting his wisdom teeth the first time he bites off more than he can chew.
Herb Caen
 
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


Be happy. It's one way of being wise.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius

Cleverness is not wisdom.
Euripides


Don't taunt the alligator until after you've crossed the creek.

I've long known that your part of the world is beautiful, but these photos are stunning. I especially like the beach picture with the snow-covered mountains in the background.

Such attractive water scapes, especially the one with the sail boat.
Being happy and wise: not so easily achieved.

Rajesh said...

Beautiful images with matching quotes. Last one is my favorite.

My favorite is the sailboat picture, Sylvia. It looks very serene floating along the shore’s edge. I agree with Emerson. Nature can’t be rushed or ruffled. It goes at its own pace and will not be hurried by mankind’s impatience. It would do well to go with its flow.

Kathiesbirds said...

Marie said...

A little taste of everything spring has to offer - all lovely shots, Sylvia. That last golden photo with the tree silhouetted is gorgeous.

I, too, am becoming impatient for a real change in the weather, a day when there is real warmth in the sun.

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.
