A Big Monster!

 A fool and his money are soon elected.
Will Rogers

Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one.
E. B. White

 Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge


The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.

You found clouds in all shapes and varieties. Nice!

Francisca said...

Oh, but your monster gives character to your blue sky, Sylvia! Great quotes again, but I beg to differ with Will - today he would/could/should say, "A fool and corporate money are soon elected." :-D

Misalyn said...

I see that monster, Sylvia--and I'm running the other way!

I WONDER WHY

I wonder why
Some love the sky
But not the wind and rain.

I wonder, friend,
If sky will end—
It’s too much for my brain!

Oh, Sylvia, those are all so beautiful! Thanks for sharing them along with your quote. On mine ... I took them out the car window at 60 mph using the "Action Sports Shooting" ... it worked like a charm. I did take about 20 of them; not all turned out.

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.
