Sky Watch Friday!!!

Welcome to Sky Watch!! Share the beauty of your skies!  They’re all so different, depending on the season, weather etc. so they’re always exciting with their own beauty!!  We’ve had some lovely autumn skies already!! Hope you enjoy these!!

There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious. It is too good to waste on jokes. – C.S. Lewis

I cannot believe that the inscrutable universe turns on an axis of suffering; surely the strange beauty of the world must somewhere rest on pure joy! --Louise Bogan

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~Khalil Gibran

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.
