Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. Albert Camus

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Anais Nin

Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven. Rabindranath Tagore

A gorgeous sky, a beautiful flower, and a wonderful sun shot....what a way to put myself to bed tonight. And your new banner is just toooooo cute. They just get better and better. Love them all. Like I said before, you need to put them all together not a digital book for us to see. Hugs, genie

That is such a fabulous sky in the first shot! Love these, Sylvia!

A beautiful post. That final quote has me thinking of the book I just read, The Silence of Trees. Beautiful, Sylvia. Thanks.

The sky with its wispy clouds looks as if it glows! Your skies are always inspirational, paired with your wonderful quotes. Camus had it just right.

Bises,
Genie

The clouds carry the same pink as the bloom. The silhouette photo is just lovely, Sylvia.

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.
