Our World


Time to visit Our Worlds again!!  A friend of mine came to visit me last week and the first thing she asked was could we go to some of the places I had taken her before!!  Of course I said YES!! And off we went and here are a few of the things we enjoyed AGAIN!! Hope you enjoy them again, too!!

A cloudless plain blue sky is like a flowerless garden. ~Terri Guillemets

Only from the heart can you touch the sky. ~Rumi

When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky. ~Buddha

Clouds are the sky's imagination. ~Terri Guillemets

Absolutely gorgeous Sylvia. I know I sound like a broken record, but it's true...your posts always capture and intensify my senses. Today's quote by Rumi is my favorite.

They are all beautiful photos but I think the second one is my favourite.

Beautiful photos of your part of the world That big tree in the first photo is really great. I also especially like the clouds and light over the water. Thanks for sharing.

That big Oregon tree in the first photo is wonderful, as are all the pictures. The first quote is true, but it took me a while to realize that a plain blue sky is almost as boring as a plain gray one. Do you have as much smoke up there as we do?

I love the tall trees. Once in the woods it seems as if one has travelled farther than actual.

Wonderful photos, Sylvia - the second one with the rain dropping from the distant cloud is exquisite. It's always great to play tourist with a friend, I love doing that where I live, I never get tired of it. I hope you're having a great week!

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.
