Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

One joy scatters a hundred griefs.
      
Chinese Proverb

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.  
James Openheim
What a wonderful life I've had!  I only wish I'd realized it sooner.  
Colette

Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. 
 
Nathaniel Hawthorne

Beautiful pictures -- the Colette quote has me laughing. The butterfly quote is a sign in a butterfly house in Ft Myers and I loved it!

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.
