Evening, Wisdom and Beauty



Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it. - Confucius

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare. -Mark Twain



Wisdom outweighs any wealth. -Sophocles

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. - Virgil A. Kraft



Shrugging of
a cold lethargic
winter,
Mrs Rose
and Ms Carnation
in association
with
Madame Dahlia,
meet in
fields
awash
with
the colors of spring...

In
an air
redolent
with the
heady
April perfume
they raise
a Tulip toast
of
blood red wine,
saying
"Cheers!",
to the curious
bees , moths
and butterflies,
trying the crash the party............

The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.

The most valuable thing I have learned from life is to regret nothing.
- Somerset Maugham



Your key to freedom lies in your power to control your thoughts.



To teach is to touch a life forever.

Excellent my friend. That tulip is one of my all time favorites. :)

The tulips really are beautiful, but I especially like the tree and lake at twilight. I really visited to thank you for giving so much of your time to ABC Wednesday. It looks like a big job! Thanks for visiting us all.

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.
