Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Your flowers are absolutely beautiful. I cannot imagine them blooming at this time of the year....but you are in the Pacific Northwest. Now that I have turned 73, I will need to read and reread your quote for the last shot over and over again. The sunset is so pretty. genie

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.
