Thanks

"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light." Albert Schweitzer

Thanks to my many friends in the internet & everyday world who inspire and support my creativity. Click the links to Sky Watch Friday, my favorite day of the week when 100s of bloggers from all over the world share a peek into what the sky is doing at their place this week.

It has been a bit overcast and blustery around here for the last few weeks with the sky under cover of thick blankets of clouds. But a flurry of activity over on the Tattered Angels web site with their new format, new colours and so much more to be seen.

Great photo and I love the quote. I used to live down the road from the Albert Schweitzer Center in Great Barrington, MA. I'm sure there is more than one and I'm not sure what the Mass connection is anymore...

anyway, have a happy holiday season!

Peace,
Gina

It has been a rainy and stormy few days here in California too...
Great shot too. I live near the bay, so seagulls fly toward my window often - and my cat tries to see if she can get one to come in - they're lovely birds as long as they aren't right above you!
