Evening, Wisdom and Beauty


A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

There are always flowers for those who want to see them.

Matisse. Makes me think of the idea that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Beautiful post. Thanks. Have a super week!

Sylvia, I have not been able to get to your site (and some others) for a while. My old computer XP, IE 6) started acting strange after a power failure. I just got a new one (win7, IE8) so should be good for a while.

Your recent political quotes are right on, especially with events in Washington this past week! And your skies have been super! Good luck on your move and I hope you enjoy your new abode.

For me there must always be flowers!

I love your header. I hope you're loving your new place. That photo of the light coming through those tulips is exceptional.

Et tu, Sylvia?!? I've got a serious crush on tulips, and it does not help with so many of you sharing their beauty...

I like the sunlight hitting the tulips. Great photo to turn into a painting.

OK -- that last quote resonates! I have been feeling lonesome for Spring flowers (the kind that Seattle and Eugene have -- and Florida does not. But we DO have flowers (literally AND figuratively) and I need to stop missing what I don't have and enjoy what I do!!!

Your pictures (as always) are stunning.

Thanks.

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.
