[SkyWatch] Under a Cloudless Sky

Charlie Brown: I'm depressed, Linus. I need an encouraging word to cheer me up.
Linus: Happiness lies in our destiny like a cloudless sky before the storms of tomorrow destroy the dreams of yesterday and last week.
Charlie Brown: I think that blanket is doing something to you.
- Charles Schultz in Snoopy Come Home



Austria, 2011
All was glorious — a cloudless sky above, a most delicious view around. . . . How great is our good fortune! I care not what may be the condition of the earth; it is the sky that is for me now.
- Jacques Alexandre Cesare Charles,
first free flight in a manned
hydrogen balloon, 1 December 1783
What can I say? Such have been my skies all week.

Beautiful blue skies...so rare over Ontario, I'm afraid. :) Love the blossoms as well. I bet you are enjoying your time in Austria with family!

Beautiful, Francisca, and perfect quotations, too. I love "a most delicious view"!
We were so fortunate with blue skies in Europe. We took two folding umbrellas, and I only used one once, to protect me from the sun in the very south of France.

We've been blessed with these also over the past few weeks. There's nothing quite like it. I like clear skies at night, also. We're far enough out of the actual city lights now so we can see some of the stars...

Oh what a glorious sky! And the branches of the flower-trees look like it is reaching up to the sky :)
I love the accompanying quotations as well. Happy Skywatch Friday!

Not sure how I missed this beautiful post earlier. Not even Charlie Brown could be depressed on a day like yours.
