Weekend Reflections


Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the post title and sign up to play with us! We did have one afternoon of glorious sunshine and my son took me down to the harbor to take some shots! I think it was definitely worth the trip!
Hi Everyone! I just had an incredible surprise and early Christmas present! My oldest daughter, Robyn, whom I haven't seen in seven years, just showed up to spend Christmas with me!!!  So I may be a little late getting around to your sites, but I will! Needless to say, I'm thrilled silly!!!

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.  ~Edith Wharton

How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!  ~John Muir

When you possess light within, you see it externally.  ~Anaïs Nin

And my son has arrived from Sydney for Christmas! I haven't seen him in nearly two years! I am so excited that now I can't sleep! I must be mad!

Beautiful views in these reflections! I especially love the second photo with a boat in the foreground and snow behind on the mountain!

Thank you so much for all your regular visits to my site! They have been so appreciated!

Happy Christmas!

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.
