Beautiful reflections - both the visual and the words! Thanks for your comments on my posts from SC. Our skies tend to be clearer in cool weather - a nice change from thehot and hazy summers.

I'm not a big fan of zoos, but your pictures are really stunning ! Thanks for the lovely sharing ; I hope you will have a very nice week-end too...

Tsuki, I'm not a big fan of zoos either, but for some animals it's a last chance and in the end it may be the only way we're able to save many species. The zoo in Seattle does try to create as natural a habitat as possible for the animals -- very few "cages".

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.
