Our World Today!!

Can't believe it's the beginning of another new week!! The older I get, the quicker the time flies -- not complaining mind you, flying time is better than the alternative of  "no more time"!  And after the anniversary of 9/ll yesterday, it was easy to find the wonders of my part of Our World!!  We have such beautiful beaches and mountains, wonderful parks where you can walk, run or just absorb the beauty! And we have some of the most interesting malls! This one doesn't look like a mall at all! I mean, how many of you come face to face with a large, cocky rooster like this guy on any of your shopping trips??? And, of course, there's Mt. Rainier, mysteriously wrapped in clouds! 
May your week be a wonderful one with lots of love and laughter and beauty!
Time moves in one direction, memory in another.
William Gibson
Be happy. It's one way of being wise.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind. Lionel Hampton


If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.
Gail Sheehy
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
Maya Angelou
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. Albert Schweitzer

Oh Sylvia, that little hillock is so grand in the slanting light. Looks like you had a little outing, that rooster certainly is not in your rooftop garden. A beautiful post as always and I see you finally made it on the cover of Life magazine . . . congratulations.

Have a great week and enjoy the full moon.

Beautiful!

I love the quote that says happiness is one way of being wise. Also your headers are getting more marvelous as time goes on. How appropriate to see you in that moon shot since many of us have been enjoying the beauty of the full moon from last night to this early morning. :)

Beautiful Mt. Ranier, not only mysterious, sometimes it just disappears altogether. Brings back memories of driving back and forth between Yakima to Seattle and/or Tacoma, dicy in the snow.
Lovely photo's, but first and last are my favourites.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - every time I see one of the shots of your mountain I'm taken back there. I'll have to scan some slides from the dawn of time and post them one day!

Great pictures as ever.

Thanks for the comment on my OWT post. I paused for a long time with the mouse over "publish" before I clicked it. You can never tell how people will react.

Love the snow-capped mountains, really adds something special to a photo.

Beautiful photos as always, Sylvia. That last one is spectacular - we never saw the mountain last time we were in Seattle so it's nice to see here. I hope your week is going well.

I do not know how a series could be more beautiful that this. Loved the quotes...especially the one form Maya Angelou. She is one of my favorites. Talked to my son in Seattle last night.....I need my Pacific Northwest fix badly. genie

Francisca said...

Your world is certainly beautiful, Sylvia... but I may be one of the few of your blogger friends who regularly runs across roosters! :-)

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.
