How true the last quote, opening ones eyes to all that is good in our world and one of the things I like about SWF, taking the time to frame up the views and enjoy the show nature has put on for us all

Unusual red sky! Lovely! And very true about running orchestra.

Indrani said...

How do you get such colors!
Superb shots all.

SandyCarlson said...

These are gorgeous, my friend. And I like your banner very much.

Your quotes are so rich, and they invite us right into the picture....I wonder how a meme for finding the quote to accompany a picture, or vice versa, would go. Could be a neat way to spread some good thought around the blogosphere.

Stunning photos, Sylvia and very important quotes to go with them. I especially like : a man who leads an orchestre must turn his back to the crowd.
I wish you a great weekend.

What Can I Say?

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.
