Happy Weekend!!

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.

Sky Watch!!

Welcome to Sky Watch, where we can share the beauty and wonder of our skies – wherever they are and whatever the season!!
Look up and enjoy and share the view with us!!
I do hope that you are all having a great week and that you are looking forward to the holidays ahead!!  I know that I am!! Christmas with a new grandson -- ah! doesn't get much better!!
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
-- John Muir
Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
-- Elizabeth Lawrence
Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.
-- Albert Camus
The Sky is the daily bread of the imagination.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.
