Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by Klaus and the Sky Watch team of Klaus, Sandy, Wren and me. Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! Click on the address under the post title to be taken to the SWF website where you can sign up. We did have a wonderful sunny day earlier this week and these shots were taken on the roof, all four directions! It was awesome! Have a wonderful weekend and may you find beautiful skies wherever, whenever you lift your gaze!

All is connected... no one thing can change by itself.

You made it for Skywatch, Sylvia--and what magnificent skies they are!

LOOKING UP

No matter if blue or if grey,
The sky is my favorite way
To find my heart’s ease;
And now, if you please,
I must go look up straightaway.

Mary said...

Sylvia, those clouds and the wonderful blue skies...do you not just wish you could float upon one of those clouds and see the earth from their changing vantage point...;)

Wondering...can you still view my blog? Two have said it is either blocked, or they can no longer access it...how frustrating~

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.
