Evening, Thoughts and Beauty



Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Albert Einstein



Do all things with love.
Og Mandino



Beneath
the petals
spread in clinical precision
shoulder to shoulder
fresh and blue
clustered en masse
secure
in the safety
of numbers,
are
the hardworking,
rough skinned
upward looking
leaves
flaring out
tangled
mostly in tolerance,
in each other,
some purple
at the edges
due to strain,
some coming up
with new ones,
and some,
slogging away beneath
in proletarian style
so that
the blues
may enjoy their day
in the sun.

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.

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.
