SkyWatch Friday - Musky Bay Sunset, Lac Courte Oreilles, August - 2022- Quote - John Cleese - "Open Mode"

Image 1682B Musky Bay Sunset, Lac Courte Oreilles
Quote: “We all operate in two contrasting modes, which might be called open and closed. The open mode is more relaxed, more receptive, more exploratory, more democratic, more playful and more humorous. The closed mode is the tighter, more rigid, more hierarchical, more tunnel-visioned. Most people, unfortunately spend most of their time in the closed mode.” ~ John Cleese

    1. Carol, thanks for the comment. Have a nice weekend.

  2. Oh gosh! I'm so glad I did not miss this! Thanks so much!

  3. Love the reflection in this photo of those giant pink clouds! Enjoy your week!

  4. Beautiful photo, I love the colors and the reflections that you captured.
    I also like the quote. It seems much of the country is now in closed mode. Open mode requires a lot more energy and acceptance of other peoples opinions.

    1. Agreed about "open mode requires more energy and acceptance of other peoples opinions."

  5. Beautiful picture -- and a thoughtful quote from an unlikely source (John Cleese made me laugh so much in Monty Python skits). Our country seems to be operating in closed mode these days sadly -- it seems as if hardly anybody is open to listen to others or to learn anything new.
