Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
Anne Broadstreet

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.
Christopher Morley

I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.

There's definitely both wisdom and beauty in this post. I need to remember that last quote. I hope you and Sam had a wonderful weekend - it was so warm here today I was in short sleeves and shorts working on the deck railing!

I think it's very considerate in the first shot Sylvia, that the tree has not grown any branches in just that spot so you can still see the view haha.

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.
