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!

Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life.

The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.

Happiness itself does not stay -- only moments of happiness do.

How creative capturing you in a dewdrop, Sylvia! As the quotes for today suggest, happiness is something that comes and goes … but your image truly knows no bounds. :)

I agree with JM Sylvia, just catching the sun before it slips away in the top shot was good luck indeed. I so look forward to seeing your new headers, such fun. Hope you have a fab weekend, our skies are definitely clearing up so should be lovely..then back to rain next week, so it works out well.

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.
