Sky Watch!!!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team led of Yogi, Sandy and Sylvia. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week!  http://skyley.blogspot.com/
 After days and days of nothing but gray skies and no sunsets that you could see, these colors suddenly burst through and rollicked across the western sky for about a half hour and then disappeared into the gray again. I was so busy scrambling to get somewhere so I could get a shot or two, I nearly missed them. I couldn't get on the roof because they had locked the door so all I could do was catch these through the windows in my apartment!!
Give me the splendid silent sun at sunset.  Walt Whitman

The poetry of the earth is never dead.  John Keats
At sunset Nature is painting for us... day after day... pictures of infinite beauty.   John Ruskiin

One Quiet Moment

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

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.
