Evening Wisdom and Beauty

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Edith Wharton
Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.
Nido Qubein
For a gallant spirit there can never be defeat.
Wallis Simpson
Life is short! Forgive quickly!
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret anything
that made you smile!

I didn't realize how many different types of tulips there are Sylvia, the traditional are gorgeous but the yellow are so unusual. Beautifully shown here.

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.
