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! 
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

Do you see the outstretched hand holding the tiny cloud?
 
Do you see the outstretched hand in the sky holding the baby clouds?
To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must
observe.

Sylvia, Some of these skies are "inspiring"--just beautiful. How can you look at them and not have "lofty" thoughts! Love the quotes, as always. Have a terrific weekend. I know you will keep busy as you seem to do each and every day. Mickie :)

Oh, yes, I saw the hand holding the little cloud. And I love love love the color in that last photo. Seattle has never done that for me when I've been driving down the I-5.

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.
