Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Too often we under estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Leo Buscaglia
 
Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.
 James Thurber

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Mother Teresa
 
Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.

Oh Silvia, I am arriving late to find out about Klaus.
I am so very sorry and sad ~ but do believe that he lives on the other side of the thin veil that divides our world with the ever after.
He was so very young.
Sky Watch is such a special community of people. What an amazing idea he had ~ I'm not sure if there's anything I can do to help, but if ever there is, let me know!

Have you cross a tomato plant with a carnation, or are you practising what's the term, where you grow many plants so that one plant will repell pest from the other?

I love your photographs Sylvia especially the last, it is so relaxing and the Selye quote is right on.

We're back up over a 100F this week. Next week though it'll be in the frigid upper 80's.

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.
