Our World



Happy Monday!!  My captures for My World today were taken on my street, across from my apartment in Portland yesterday!! Needless to say, it was a glorious day!! My photos aren't that great because I was in such a hurry to get them before the weather changed, but I do hope you enjoy them!!






The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do. ~Galileo Galilei




The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
Ralph Waldo Emerson



Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
Frank Lloyd Wright




Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
Lao Tzu




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

Beautiful blossoms. Here in southern Ontario, we are enjoying the crocus that appeared a couple of days ago. In the Atlantic Provinces, everything is still snow-covered. Thank you for sharing what you see.

Sorry to hear you were feeling badly this morning! We have both been very sick with colds and bronchitis the past 2 1/2 to 3 weeks - got it in a doctor's office from a doofus who was terribly ill but didn't know enough to stay home!

The photo at the art museum is of Lois Anne. I guess I'd better mention that in the post. Thanks for your too kind comments!

Jack said...

It looks like the azaleas are in full bloom, Sylvia.

Carver said...

Wow, glorious day indeed. Our azaleas are still in the small bud stage so these shots reminded me what we have to look forward to soon.

How pretty! I often toy with moving to your part of the country - I think I'd have a hard time with the grey skies but there's so much natural beauty there.

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.
