Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

The best portion of a good man's life is the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
 William Wordsworth
The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.
 Elbert Hubbard

Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.
Evan Esar

You don't choose your family.  They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.   
Desmond Tutu

Hi there - great pictures.

A saying I like seems to be a twist on one of your quotes here:
"Family is Gods revenge for letting you pick your own friends!"

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.
