Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
Lao Tzu
Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.

I really like the reflections in your first photo. The tree growing in the sky is neat. But the reflection of that golden sky in the water of your second photo is simply gorgeous.

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.
