Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Buddha
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Henry Ellis
 
Your life is what your thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius
 
The fear of life is the favorite disease of the 20th century.

Sylvia,
"All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on" ..there's that delicate balance again. It is so important in our stressful lives.
Take good care...

Beautiful quotes and sunsets. A quote from Joe Spado's blog (and he was quoting a dear Native American friend that he just lost):
"Do not look behind you. There is nothing for you there."

I missed seeing you on ABC Weds.

I love the Ellis and Budha quotes. Living in the present, holding on, and letting go. Takes a lifetime to figure all that out.

Oh the last quote is so true, Sylvia. People allow fear to rule their lives and this is a disease. Hope you're having a wonderful day. Thanks for sharing. Blessings Jo

You've given us a lot of wisdom in the quotes to go along with the beauty of your photos. I love the sunsets.

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.
