Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Thinking: the talking of the soul with itself.
Plato

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  Marcel Proust

If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come.
Chinese Proverb

Gorgeous evening skies and the tulips remind us the promise of spring... Ours comes and goes so quickly that we will be into summer before we can blink!

Bises,

There is no end to the creativity and humor your friend has with with 'mug shot'! Always brings a BIG smile to my face and giggles to boot. Love the flowers you've provided us with today along with the sagely quotes.

Beautiful captures, Sylvia. We have had three days of cold, gray, stormy, rainy weather - Autumn definitely. Lovely to see your Spring images.

You never run out of wisdom and beauty! I hope you get a chance to go to the tulip festival. I hear the fields are pretty much in full bloom now.

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.
