Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us! 
Except for when I turn on the TV and get the news, it's been a wonderful week! We've had sunshine and lovely skies and mild temps! So different from most of the country! Here are my reflections for the day! I wish you all a wonderful weekend with lots of love and laughter!
People with many interests live, not only longest, but happiest.

You made me smile, Sylvia. I DO like to know what's going on in the world...but after I find out it can be so depressing! No matter what, I'm still addicted to it.

I love the pictures, but what Eleanor Roosevelt said is so true " No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." a lot of people, especially young ones need to know this. Thanks for sharing.

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.
