Sky Watch!!

Happy Thursday!! And welcome to Sky Watch and an opportunity to see some gorgeous skies from around the world!! Are we lucky or what?? I know I shouldn’t complain, but our skies recently have been SO boring and plain blue – not our usual by any means!! But I’ve chosen some from more exciting “sky times”!!  Hope you enjoy! And wishing all of you a beautiful, wonderful, relaxing, fun weekend!!

The work will wait while you show the child the rainbow, but the rainbow won't wait while you do the work. ~Author Unknown  
*Same is true for a flaming sky like this one!!

The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears. ~John Vance Cheney

The sky was a midnight-blue, like warm, deep, blue water, and the moon seemed to lie on it like a water-lily, floating forward with an invisible current. ~Willa Sibert Cather

Clouds are the sky's imagination. ~Terri Guillemets

One Quiet Moment

With finger on her solemn lip,
Night hushed the shadowy earth.
~Margaret Deland

I cannot walk through the suburbs in the solitude of the night without thinking that the night pleases us because it suppresses idle details, just as our memory does. ~Jorge Luis Borges

A Fun Look Back!!

Sometimes it’s actually fun to clean house – well, at least on my computer it’s fun, let’s not talk about the other house cleaning!! I found some favorites to share with you today! Hope you enjoy!
The first, as many of you know, is my “tango dancing” daughter in a clip that was taken for showing the fun and beauty of the tango.

Then some lovely, lavender blossoms in a favorite park.

And the next is a sky view from the roof of my apartment complex in Seattle.

Last is my favorite path through a beautiful park here in Portland.
Lots of beauty, hope you enjoy!!

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.
