Sky Watch Friday!!

My son, Adam, was traveling in Idaho this past week and took this shot!! Has an eye for lovely skies, doesn't he?
A sure way to lose happiness, I found, is to want it at the expense of everything else.
Bette Davis

Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is right at their heels.
Bertolt Brecht
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Aristotle
Every gift from a friend is a wish for your happiness.
Richard Bach
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!

 I hope everyone has had a great week and wishing you a beautiful weekend with lots of glorious skies! Enjoy!

Adam sure has what it takes, Sylvia!

Really enjoyed your pictures and your quotes, today. Wish I could spend more time with photography but am in the proces of setting up my own business. But hey, I will retire in 20 years or so! ;-) Have a good weekend, Sylvia!

I love those little tufts of mondo-grass under beautiful blue skies in Idaho ( I'm going to have to Google Idaho to see where it is) Lovely quotes to remind us that happiness is in the small everyday things.

That first shot is a real winner - and given your new header I am not sure if it's a backhand or a forehand winner!

Thank you for sharing your happiness quotes! I do believe that one should never depend on another person to fulfill one's need for happiness! Cultivate your own happiness because only you know precisely what gives you joy.

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.
