Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us! Sorry to be so late, but like most of us I've been suffering from Blogger Loss -- almost as bad as brain loss!!! We've had a couple of nice days, but the weather doesn't look promising for the next ten days -- AGAIN!!!  So, back to files!
I am imagination. I can see what the eyes cannot see. I can hear what the ears cannot hear. I can feel what the heart cannot feel.
Peter Nivio Zarlenga
 
Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young.
W. Somerset Maugham
The most imaginative people are the most credulous, for them everything is possible.

I'm charmed by your penguin photo,Sylvia--and also relieved that Blogger is back in business so I can comment! Now, if Skywatch Friday would just come back online, I'd be ecstatic!

I really like these reflections -- you did a wonderful job with all three of them. But I must admit that I really like the penguin photo -- it's delightful.

I love the penguin photo! I'm a sucker for penguins, as it says in the early chapters of An Unfittie's Guide. Dick and I started our adventures because he told me I could see penguins in the Galapagos Islands.
I love to see them anywhere, and your photo is delightful.

Hi Sylvia, Those are beautiful shots. I'm sorry I missed your skywatch. My Skywatch went down with blogger and I guess yours did too. Not sure if they'll get the posts back up or not. Anyway these are lovely shots and I hope you have a great weekend!

The Penguin photo is excellent..!

Arija said...

Love the penguins and your new header!
Blogger swallowed my SkyWatch post with comments!
I have just at least reposted the photos.

Have a lovely weekend on your roof garden.

James said...

Cool reflections! I guess it could be a pun because of the penguins but it wasn't intended.
Weekend Reflections is up and I hope your appointment went well.

Dianne said...

Hi Sylvia - love your photos especially those gorgeous penguins and another lovely header.
Enjoy your week-end. xx

An exciting series of photos! The penguin photo wins me! A cute bunch of characters!

awarewriter said...

Hi Sylvia. I'm blushing. Thanks for your visit and your kind words.

Your first image has a kind of magical quality about it. I'd suggest printing and framing -- the mood, colors, composition are all there.

Karen said...

Great shots Sylvia, love the penguins! I also like your new header.
My original Skywatch/reflection post went down with blogger. I put a different Reflection post up.

Beautiful photos as always, Sylvia. That first one is incredible, with the sun rays. I can't imagine 10 days of bad weather - you'd better get some good weather before we fly out there. I'll try to bring some of our Colorado sunshine. Socks appreciates the pat :)

Woody said...

The penguins are GREAT!

Dyche Designs said...

Your sunsets are always so beautiful, inspiring.

EG Wow said...

Wonderful collection of quotes about imagination, Sylvia. I wonder if an adult really imagines more than a child. :)

Dianne said...

ohhhhhhh!!!!

I love those little ones

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great pics. I love the "... I can feel what the heart cannot feel. from the first quote.

Blogger appears to be up so I can visit my friends.

Rajesh said...

Beautiful reflections. The first shot is stunning.

Martha Z said...

All nice but especially the penguins.
Yes, Blogger put us all off of our routine.

stardust said...

Perfectly lovely! I, too, was moved by the header and words sent from your loved friend. You must be smiling on top of the world.

I really appreciate all the quotes about imagination and the terrific photos as always. Have a nice weekend, Sylvia.

Nature Rambles said...

Again, a wonderful series, Sylvia. I love the penguin photo and the sunset is spectacular!!

Francisca said...

Hello, hello, Sylvia! Blogger woes kept me from posting my skies yesterday, but got there in time for reflections, yay! Your quotes on imagination are winners... I especially like "Imagination grows by exercise..." And the penguins get the aaaaaaw vote today. Glad to hear you're all settled in, and the new header is spectacular.

Emille said...

There's something very endearing about the penguins! Most saw your new header -very cute and inventive! But, I almost chose this background for my own new blog

Nifty, nifty, nifty. You are an amazing lady.
