Evening Wisdom, Thoughts and Beauty



To fear is one thing. To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another. ~Katherine Paterson, Jacob Have I Loved

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson



And remember, no matter where you go, there you are. ~Confucius



Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth. ~Benjamin Disraeli



Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year - it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul. ~Author Unknown

I get so upset when I hear people apologize for divulging their feelings. That Disreali quote really says it all. Thanks.

All of the photos are beautiful, but I am especially taken with the lovely pink blossoms opening up on the tree. They remind me of pearly seashells.

Do not remember the Confusius saying, but in Alice in Wonderland there is a line saying If you do not where to end, it does not matter where you go

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
