Weekend Reflections!!

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us!
With the holiday trip to Oregon and moving back there in early spring, I haven't had the time or ability to get out for many new shots, so I hope you'll bear with me and some repeats of favorites!  Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend as the holidays approach!!

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

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!  http://skyley.blogspot.com/
 I do love the variety of our skies from one extreme to another!!  One never gets bored just looking up!!

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

I haven't been able to get out with the camera lately -- things have been busy and the weather has been junky -- SO, as I was going through my photo files, I realized that in April I will be moving back to Portland, Oregon!! And while I am happy about that, it was fun remembering my first birthday in Seattle when my son, Adam, took me on a fantastic flight all around the Seattle area! AND as the birthday gal, I got to sit in the co-pilot seat!!  It was one of the most fun birthdays ever!!!  Hope you enjoy!

Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
William James

The problem with beauty is that it's like being born rich and getting poorer.Joan Collins

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Dalai Lama

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.
