Sky Watch!!

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! 
I wistfully looked back for those wonderful blue skies!! Hope you enjoy them!
Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does
not laugh....

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a
miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Beautiful cloud shapes and colours! The middle photo of bulbous clouds almost suggests that the clouds are growing fat on a high cholesterol feast! And love the last view of bright skies across blue waters and the panorama of snowy peaks in the background!

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.
