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!
We are actually enjoying some really lovely weather and I wish I were able to get to some of my favorite places, but I'll have to rely on the "good ole" files for today! Hope all of you have a great weekend!!

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains
     of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and
     spring after the winter.
                                                                           
       Rachel Carson

If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming
to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter
it.   John Templeton

The ducks are my favorite, but the shell reminds me of home.

I must have overlooked the link to your blog header blog. I have seen more that were not even shown on your blog. She has a wide range of imagination and very creative and artistic!

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.
