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!

The fog comes on little cat feet.  It sits looking over the harbor
        and city on silent haunches and then moves on.

Your images even outshine the beautiful words you always chose so carefully! Thank you for sharing your skies!

"The fog comes on little cat feet." - Thank you for this quote, it is magical and so true. I have watched fog rising from the Danube river and then slowly descending over the city, as if, well, on cat's feet.

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.
