Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team of  Sandy, Wren and me. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week!
And the new year is here! Hope it's off to a great start for all of you and may we all find beautiful skies!!
Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.

Happy NewYear Sylvia. I love your beautiful sky photo's,
I saw your last post and I do so agree with all it says. I am from 1938 so I do know what you are talking about. The world changed so much and not for the best.

Beautiful skies, the quote by Christopher Morley is so true, I really believe a good cry is so much better than bottling it all up inside. Hopefully no tears in the near future, hope you have a wonderful weekend Sylvia.

I love that first picture, Sylvia. The colours are just fantastic. Enjoy your week!

Arija said...

Beautiful shots Sylvia as always. I love the massed clouds obliterating the light in the sky to brighten even more the reflected light in the water.

Hope all is getting sorted with you my friend and you can look forward to a brighter future.

What Can I Say?

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.
