Sky Watch!!


Time to enjoy beautiful skies from everywhere!!
We’ve had such a variety of skies during the past couple of months as Spring has slipped into the northwest much, much earlier than usual and I think the skies have been celebrating!!  Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend coming up!! Enjoy!!



Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
-- Ella Fitzgerald

Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed.
-- Corita Kent




Play keeps us vital and alive. It gives us an enthusiasm for life that is irreplaceable. Without it, life just doesn't taste good.
-- Lucia Capocchione

The beauty of empowering others is that your own power is not diminished in the process.

More lovely photos, my friend.

Re your comment on The Villages: You are right in that the golf cars are toys for partially grown-up boys, but they are more than that in The Villages. Almost everybody has one - and they're used just as much by women as men - to not only play golf but get around town. Most streets in The Villages are golf car friendly. It's really a pretty wild situation. You gotta be here to believe it.

Hi Sylvia,
Very beautiful sky views.
I was also very attracted to your banner. That look on the face of the newspaper-reader is amazing.

On the topic of Simians, have you by chance read the book, "Field Notes on A Compassionate Life", by Marc Ian Barasch? He too talks about the compassionate ways of the Bonobos.

Thanks for hosting this meme!

Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

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.
