Cagayan Skies

These inspiring skies I saw just a few weeks ago near Santa Ana in Cagayan, the northern tip of Luzon, Philippines, I share with you and the good folks at SkyWatch Friday.


 “Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud.” 
~ Maya Angelou
 

"My joy is the golden sunset giving thanks for another day."
~ Johnathan Lockwood Huie


"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, 
but to add color to my sunset sky."
~ Rabindranath Tagore

PS. I have not been posting these past weeks because I am preparing for a significant life change. I miss blogging and the connection with my blogger friends, but I have had to rearrange my priorities in how I spend my time. So my participation will be sporadic. Just know that I am well and happy.

The photos along with quotes are wonderful.

It is good to see you again. Reading that you were/are "preparing for a significant life change" made my heart beat faster hoping it wasn't something horrible.
You said you are well and happy, so it must be good.

Wishing you well in all areas of your life.

Hugs ~ FlowerLady

Thanks for the beautiful photos and for letting us know you are alive and well and happy. (I've been hoping you were OK -- always wonder when one of the "regulars" doesn't pop up on Google Reader!)

Hello! Sounds exciting - hope it's the kind of life-change you're looking forward to. Gorgeous skies - and I do like the baby's tuft of hair.

Dear Francisca, your lovely photos just like those above will be very alive in our mind's eye, lingering there through time. So even if you're just posting sporadically, you are always beautifully remembered. I will always have wonderful thoughts of you, and your travels. Stay happy and travelling, and we are so happy for you too! Take care, and we will wait for the photos from your next home - 3 years?

Good to see you're back and that sunset photo is picture perfect.

Susan said...

Hey Cisca. yay. Miss you and glad you're well. I too have not been blogging even though I don't have a big life change coming up. I'm glad our paths crossed at this juncture. My hit or miss leaves me with too many misses. also hope the BIG change is a positive one.
Love that shot with the gorgeous light and soft silhouette.
Wishing you happy days until our paths circle 'round again.

Glad you are happy and well. The rainbow made me smile. Our drought this year was difficult, but I missed not only the rain but the rainbows too.

I love the sunset photo, magic!!
I will have a better look through these Philippine posts as when I first saw the kids I called my sons girlfriend out who is from there to ask about here heritage and compare life from there to here in Sydney. An eye opener.
Wonderful posts as usual, glad you are well and happy and look forward to your post when ever they appear. :)
