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!
One of my visitors told me that I should use more big pics instead of the collages that I've been using  for a few weeks.  I've used both over the years, but with so many posts for people to visit and comment on, I've tried to keep it to one photo, just lots of skies!! But,  today  I'll share three single ones and I hope you enjoy them! Have a wonderful weekend!!

Each season has its own wonder, it's own special place, and
     purpose in the pattern of creation.

Delight in the beauty that surrounds you.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains
     of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and
     spring after the winter.

Gorgeous skies, perfect quotes (that always make me think). I've read that its good to mix up things on your blog and not have everything always the same. I like your collages and your big pictures. Do whatever you feel like doing -- it's always beautiful.

Wonderful series again for today's SWF, Sylvia. I love them all, but the last photo in your next post is my favourite this time.
I think it's a good choice to show your photos in a bigger format.

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.
