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 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!  We had clear and beautiful skies yesterday and I could see Mt. Rainier!! I'm sharing that with you today! Enjoy!

Fear makes strangers of people who would be friends.

There are people who can do all fine and heroic things but one - keep from telling their happiness to the unhappy.
Mark Twain

When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.

Your skies are so much prettier than mine these days Sylvia and what a spectacular view of Mr Rainier here and in the last post also, can you actually see it from your home? What an amazing sight to behold each day.

Glorious skies Sylvia! I love your golden sunsets, and the touch of pink in the last photo is delightful.

Fine photos, Sylvia. You are lucky to have Mt Ranier as a beacon.

That last comment is pretty astute. Not that I will remember to follow that advice next time I should, but that is my failing, not the author's.

magiceye said...

love the 1st pic!!

Kusum said...

I love the cloud pattern in the first sky pic. And ha ha the header is funny!

bellybytes said...

Hey Sylvia, I got in touch with kaimhanta and it turned out that we have plenty of people we know in common. Imagine being physically only 30 km apart but getting to know of each other only through a virtual world! The wonders of modern technology never cease to amaze me!

Lakshmi said...

Such stunning pics..i loved the quotes..fear does psyche us than reality ..you have a great weekend

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Wow, great pics Sylvia. I really love the first quote. I think fear may be the country is at each other's throats.

Arija said...

Such beautiful skies and scenery Sylvia. It certainly pays to live on high. With Seattle seeing so much 'weather', you always have such interesting skies to offer.

I hope you and Sam are getting out and about this weekend.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Your last photo and quote are wonderful.

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.
