Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
Mark Twain

Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.
Mark Twain

Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.
Mark Twain

Hi, Sylvia

I don't know if you listen to Morning Edition on NPR but there was an item this morning on Mark Twain's autobiography and how it finally came to him how to write it. It was really interesting. I put it on my list of things to follow up on.

The photos are beautiful. You always have such wonderful food for thought and eyes here.

Peace and love,

The trees in the second picture reminds me of a weeping willow but I think they are to tall. The colors are wonderful.
Nice job taking that middle one.

Nothing strikes my "boys" with wonder and envy like a jet leaving a long trail behind as it streaks across clear blue skies...

The middle one is spectacular! And what is that weeping willow like tree that doesn't have to weep? Lovely. Tks for stopping by my 'Time' piece and, you too, have a great weekend, Sylvia.

Going backwards would be fun but then so would be many other impossible things too.

Your sunset photos are wonderful.

Ditto what your other guests have said, Sylvia! Your sunset photos are spectacular and Twain's "assault of laughter" is perfect.

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.
