Evening, Wisdom and Beauty



Hope is the only universal liar who never loses his reputation for veracity. ~Robert G. Ingersoll



Love floods us with hope. ~Jareb Teague



The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet. ~James Openheim

In honor of the wonderful third photograph.....

The school
in the woods,
The green little
elementary schoolers,
crowded together
on the slope
waving
along
the path of learning.

Slightly older
taller,
middle schoolers,
hanging around,
in clumps of green,
a bit
down the slope......
The younger ones
looking expectantly
at
a possible sweet fruit
in life
as they descend
picnic style
to the sea.

But it's the
high school types,
tall lanky
and independent,
stauesquely proud,
overlooking all
and their childishness....

Till they spy
a wayward tree,
bending
under some pressure....
"hold on,
lean on me",
one says;
"you cant go astray;
We seniors
set an example,
and the little ones follow..."

Sensible greening
makes for a
wonderful life !

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open. ~John Barrymore



Even if there is nothing to laugh about, laugh on credit. ~Author Unknown



The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ~e.e. cummings

I try to keep my doors closed this time of the year because it´s cold outside. I wonder if happiness really wanders out there in the freezing autumn. It´s possible.

Hi Sylvia, your photos are fantastic. I loved the quotes and the poem by Ugich. Such a lovely addition to an already wonderful post. Thanks for stopping by my blog while I was away on vacation. I loved visiting Seattle, and look forward to visiting it again, next time staying a little bit longer. What an incredible place to live.

I feel like I've been wandering through all that beauty--thanks Sylvia!

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.
