Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Love is a curious thing. The more you give it away, the more it comes back to you.
-- David L. Weatherford


Drunk
on their
own thoughts,
they sit
virtually unspeaking,
on the appointed benches;
one ,
all tight
dry and clean,
the other,
immersed
in some
moving
sea-weedy sands.

The world goes on,
wave after wave,
frothing and mixing
raising a toast
to
the snowy mountains,
Cheers to Life !

And the
lone seagull,
swooping around
wonders
why
these two
belonging
to the thinking tribe
have nothing to say to each other.....

I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
-- Martha Washington
Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
-- George Bernard Shaw

Hi Sylvia. We've been gone for a week, so today I've been catching up on my favs off and on all day long. Saved you until last especially because of Evening Wisdom and Beauty. What better way to end the day. Such beautiful thoughts and pictures.

Don't work too hard getting ready to move. You don't want to be too tired to enjoy your first days in your new digs !! I'm so excited and happy for you.

These images are pure delight. That last quote has me thinking again about a Doris Lessing novel I just read.

Have a great week!

Sylvia,
what beautiful images...just lovely. It's a new day here and one I will address with a positive attitude; your quotes reminded me; especially the one by Martha Washington. It's all in the attitude.
I'm glad I stopped by this morning on my way to get ready for whatever is in front of me...

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.
