Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

You and your magical and mystical Mount Ranier. Don;t think Buddy is seeing anything like this on his hike. Thanks for the note...he just sent in some fabulous photos - one of him that look GREAT - so I added them to the post. Thought you might want to know since you have been following his forced march.

Those orchids are so purely gorgeous, Sylvia and those mountains look like it's just hanging there like a ghost.

That North BOrneo orchid, my Dad's favourite. These ones are perfect.

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.
