Living the moments

“Live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment” Henry David Thoreau

Sky Watch Friday has given me a whole other appreciation for our view of the sky, commuter trips and random afternoon moments at any time a fantastic Sky Watch might just sneak up on you. Or click the link to see what hundreds of other bloggers from all over the world have found to share with us this week.
Fabulous weekend on the north coast, drove through Alstonville to catch up with the lovely Tanyah and girls at Scrap n Craft, gosh they have some fun things going on there, including a great display of glimmer mist, glam and glaze.  Looking forward to seeing what they have planned for their next big event on Nov 6th.

It is amazing how participating in this mindfulness practice of observing the skies with so many people all around the world, can really change our way of seeing and I know for me it has really helped me to be even more grateful each and every day for the beauty of just being alive.

I always love to see old pilings in the water and wonder what was there once. Beautiful picture of one of my favorite subjects.

Beautiful picture and great words. I find, too, that Skywatch has made me more observant, and my eyes are often cast skyward in appreciation.

Isn't that the truth? I skywatch MORE because of skywatch :) Driving home on Friday I spotted a rainbow, then it became a double rainbow - but I couldn't pull over to take a photo. Love seeing your skywatch photos Mandy, and the quotes too.

I love the photos. I live near the St Lawrence and we get wonderful sunsets. My granddaughter lived in Australia for 5months going to college for international business. She loved it there and did a lot of sightseeing and took a lot of pictures.
