Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

I go to nature to be soothed and healed and to have my senses put into order. John Burroughs
All seasons are beautiful for the person who carries happiness
    within.   Horace Friess

In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.  Charles A. Lindbergh

Hope you're getting lots of sunshine up there this week. I hope you were able to check out the tulip fields; they were gorgeous this year. Enjoy the day!

Beautiful shots and great quotes, as always, Sylvia. I also find nature very soothing and healing, in fact I start to get short-tempered if I can't get somehow into nature for a couple of weeks (even if it's our local forested park). Have a great week!

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.
