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?  Hopefully in a couple of weeks I'll finally be able to get moved -- didn't realize it would take so long to get all the info together that is needed. But they're dealing with us old guys and gals and government -- doesn't get anymore paper laden than that! Anyway, I can't wait to share pictures from my new "world" with you, but thought today that I'd look back over some of the places that I will miss!!

The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.
-- Elbert Hubbard

Even when standing in the deepest, darkest valley, one can still see the stars.
-- David L. Weatherford

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
-- George Bernard Shaw

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.
-- Margaret Fuller

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
Thomas Jefferson

It looks as if spring is arriving in your place too ! I love the quote "The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live". That's so true ! but a long way until you finally get it !

Shanae Branham said...

I love your thoughts. Life is about creating yourself. You have created a place of peace and beauty here today. I am glad I stopped by.

Have a nice and happy week, Sylvia****

Antonette said...

Very nicely done Sylvia! I'm always eager to see what photos you've posted on your blog. I'm never disappointed.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great pics Sylvia. I love the Elbert Hubbard quote. One has to start from where one is, every day.
I know so many people who are so busy working hards that they forget to live.

Amila Kanchana said...

The moments captured in these photos are the ones that make you realize what a great gift life really is!

KaHolly said...

Gorgeous photos. Made me stop and say, "AH!". Where are you moving from/to?

Kay said...

Beautiful photos and a lovely way to start the week.

Rajesh said...

Your part of the world is beautiful, very scenic.

morememes said...

How I would like to be 'beamed up' and dropped there for a walk :-)

Riet said...

I love your photo's and sayings as always Sylvia. Have a good week

Gary said...

Great walk!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

My favorite is the one of the animated dog at the edge of the water. I think he is the midst of shaking off some water after a swim or perhaps he is sniffing the air. And I like the effect of incorporating the photograph into a picture frame. I thought you already moved, Sylvia, but now realize this is too lengthy a process! I’m sure it will be great to settle into your new home. :)

Beautiful photos and wonderful quotes--but when aren't your posts just that! Mickie

Looks like good weather for walking outdoors.

I love the last image with that beautiful tree.

Sylvia, if this is the world you're leaving, you have been one lucky lady. Your images reflect a peaceful and beautiful place. But knowing your eye for beauty, I know your new home will reveal a whole new world of photo opportunities for you to share with us. Trust it's all going well for you!

Your world is very beautiful!

Al said...

It's a beautiful part of the world you live in, great shots, Sylvia. I'm looking forward to visiting the area again this summer. Best of luck with the move.

I've started work on my new "Sunday Scans" meme, hopefully I can get it live in the next couple of weeks and try it out, see if there's any interest in that type of meme.

SandyCarlson said...

I love your world. Plain and simple. Thank you, friend.

Pat said...

What a beautiful place you moved from, Sylvia, and I love the quotes, especially Thomas Jefferson's. I hope your new surroundings are equally as beautiful! Is it a 55-and-older gate-lock community?

Linda Reeder said...

I loved today's quotes!
I guess I missed something a ways back. You are moving? Where, when, why?

Team G Square said...

Simply amazing .

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful pictures -- and you will still have them in your new home along with all the new adventures and beautiful things to take pictures of. Such an exciting time.

ladyfi said...

Luna Miranda said...

Stewart M said...

I wonder how mnay winter storms that tree in the last picture has been through? Lots by the look of it.

Hope you have a good week - Stewart M

Sérgio Pontes said...

Nice photos, i love the one with the puppy

Ann said...

was it too cold for anyone to be any the beach?

We are supposed to be in fall, but it is getting cold. The same way, we lost our spring, we reckon we will lost fall too, and head staright to winter.

Can you imagine me going to work in the morning in a jacket I wore last winter?

Cezar and Léia said...

Your pictures are magnificent and I love all quotations!
Your world is so special, a blessing!
Léia

Louis la Vache said...

«Louis» disagrees with the first quote. The best way is to crawl back into bed, pull the covers over you and say fugetaboudit......

Rambling Round said...

I think the dog picture is my favorite. He is really "soaking" in the sea! Favorite quote is Thomas Jefferson's. What wisdom!

Ai KaiRui Liu said...

gorgeous shots. The last one looks a bit like our coast at the Baltic

Carolyn Ford said...

beautiful land and water shots, Sylvia...and, as always you give us something to think about as we continue our week...thank you.

Titania said...

Hi Silvia, lovely scenery and great quotes. I like the doggie singing or his he just getting the drops of water from his fur. It looks so spontaneous.

cloudbusting2 said...

Those wisdoms made me feel guilty and lazy.

Andrea said...

What a Wonderful World! thanks for sharing.

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.
