Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have
helped you.   John E. Southard
The best way to find good in thyself is to begin to look for good in
others.   Unknown
The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common
things.   Henry Ward Beecher

Lovely photos, as usual, Sylvia. I rather like the colours in that last one and the moon is rather special too! Enjoy your week!

Perfect doses of both wisdom and beauty. (I think that Henry Ward Beecher quote is a perfect mantra for all of us nature bloggers.)

You've given us a lot of wisdom in beauty in this post. The first quote is marvelous, and all the pictures are gorgeous. You capture the most beautiful skies (and moon).

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.
