Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of  possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.
Gloria Steinem

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.
Hal Borland

You may be able to fool the voters, but not the atmosphere.

Meadows' quote hits the nail on the head perfectly! I like the 3rd image, but I LOVE the pond image!
cheers!

Karen said...

Great sparkly reflections, and I love your pond shot!

Lowell said...

Love the header, and the panorama of #1, and the reflections of #2, but #3 has a magnificence all its own! Perfection!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Many places of serenity and quietness. I especially like the last one, it gives a feeling of adventure!
Have a nice week, dear Sylvia!

I just love the last one : the picture is so bright, so shiny... I can almost feel the sun on my skin... Oups ! I better put sunblock now, before it's too late ! ;)

Reader Wil said...

Your friend from Mumbai has done it again. She knows how to create a smile on our faces!
Have a great weekend , Sylvia!

Lovely post of the natural world, with a little political commentary thrown in. Bravo, Sylvia! (and as for Venice, last I heard people were wading thigh-deep through Piazza San Marco -- a combination of torrential rains and tide. . .)

Lovely pictures. I feel a tinge of sadness looking at the peaceful waters, especially on the third picture.

Fantastic captures of reflections.

Kay said...

I really like Borland's quote and can really relate to it. Grass just won't quit and trees do require patience and care.

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.
