Sylvia, your quotes and messages about dreams are inspiring. I love the sailboat photo and it truly causes me to dream of summers spent "messing about" in sailboats.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend,
Genie

That's right, you gotta dream. In a week or so you will be moving into your new place.

Thank you, Sylvia, for these uplifting photos and quotes about dreams. My 90-year-old mother is going through rehabilitation exercise with a dream she'll become able to walk like before, which makes my heart warm.

Came Via Jim of Syndey's post. Sydney and New Zealand may both be Down Under, actually it ia quite far away. 3 hours flight.

But we both went to Wetlands. I told him, must be ESP.

Those flamengos are so pretty! Long legged refletions.

Enjoy your Easter Weekend!

Genie said...

I agree....dreams are necessary for life. Love your series today...specially the shot with the pink flamingos and the quote my WD.My father’s firm was one of the one who help with the design and supervision of WDW in Florida. We used to go there year after year and stayed at what was then known as the Golf Resort. The monorail stopped at the Polynesian Resort so we would walk or take a bus over to out rooms. On the way we would see the most BEAUTIFUL pink flamingos in the world. It was one of my favorite things about those “endurance test” visits with the 3 children. Thanks for a walk down memory lane today.

I am back from France, a little homesick, not because of the French Riviera, it looked like Italy, but because of my Blogfriend and her family I had such a lovely stay !!

Thom said...

Stunning reflections my friend. So beautiful. Happy Easter to you and your family :)

Crafty Green Poet said...

Lovely reflections, and those flamingoes are magnificent!

Carola said...

All are wonderful photos.
And your quotes fit perfect to them.

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.
