Sky Watch!!

Share your skies and enjoy the beauty from around the world!! 

The sky is that beautiful old parchment in which the sun and the moon keep their diary. ~Alfred Kreymborg
You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds. ~Henry David Thoreau
A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all — he's walking on them. ~Leonard Louis Levinson

Fun quote and beautiful pics. Clouds can be delightful or downright scary. I don't talk to them, though! :)

I love the quotes and beautiful clouds.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

With clouds like these, I can see why Thoreau would talk to them!

Nicely captured set of images and appropriate words for each. Well done.

Reader Wil said...

Sometimes the wind writes messages in the skies!
Thank you so much for these messages, Sylvia.

Clouds have a special beauty, and often more interesting to photograph than a sunset or sunrise. You always have wonderful words with the images.

Love that last quote Sylvia! Beautiful skies.

Lovely skies and captures, Sylvia! The first and last quotes are wonderful.. Have a happy weekend!

I am a collector of quotes. I hope you don't mind seeing the quote by Alfred Kreyonborg shared on my blog sometime soon. Love, love, love your skies posted weekly and then the quotes always leave me thinking and meditating and sometimes with chills going up and down my arms. Your blog always gets my blood pumping into the heart felt place. Great job, Sylvia!

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.
