Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.
Samuel Smiles

We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same.   Carlos Castaneda
The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.   Henry Ward Beecher

Our skies here are still bouncing from gray to blue with the winds and the 5 mountain wildfires. Things are a bit quieter tonight and it does not smell as bad. Love these shots, and your quotes this week really touched home with me. Hope all is well out there. Hope to visit in August. genie

Your sky shots are stunning...as always! Loved the quotes too. We have cloudy days and sudden showers. Our skies couldn't have been grayer.

Hello to more good series, it can perceive the soul of the wind
and like playing with sunlight caresses the soul with a gentle whisper.
Very good photos.

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.
