Sky Watch Friday!

The pleasantest things in the world are pleasant thoughts: and the great art of life is to have as many of them as possible.

Montaigne

Time spent laughing is time spent with the gods.

Japanese Proverb
If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.
David Carradine

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not
follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Albert Camus
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 and I. 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!

Sylvia know I love your skies and I love the quote from Camus: - Do not walk behind me, I can not drive. Do not walk behind me, I could not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. -

Lovely skies and great quotes again. Our skies are rumbling, I shut down the computer for awhile to avoid a lightening caused power surge. I enjoy thunderstorms but they can be hard on electrical equipment.

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.
