Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.
       Storm Jameson

The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
Allan K. Chalmers

A man is not old until regrets start taking place of dreams.

I love that first shot, Sylvia - we don't get large flowers like that around here very much. And I see that your mountain was out recently - that's something I'll never tire of seeing.

Virginia said...

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.
