Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.   Abraham

Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them.-
Count Leo Tolstoy
I think I began learning long ago that those who are happiest are those who
do the most for others.    Booker T. Washington

Lovely shots, Sylvia. I hope you're enjoying the snow, it's not that common where you live!

I agree totally with these quotes. Helping others is a great antidote for unhappiness/self-pity.

Hope your week is going well too Sylvia. Appreciate all your wonderful and positive comments on my blog.

Extremely well taken shots of the snow. The detail tells how beautiful the snow is, except of course when you have to drive home init!

Ain't that a spectacular sky? Love the colors. We had snow for a day...sad, it's really warming up... poor kids can't play much on snow.

Inviting you to join our meme about windows @Vienna and Beyond. See you!

I love your snow shots. I had to resort to my archive for skywatch today and looked over my snow pictures from previous years. I don't like snow when I have to drive in it but it sure makes for nice pics.

I love the Abraham Lincoln quote. He was one wise dude.

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.
