Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Forgiveness is the final form of love.
Reinhold Niebuhr

Few delights can equal the presence of one whom we trust utterly.
George MacDonald

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.
Leo Buscaglia

Oh, Sylvia, You have really posted some beatiful shots this time. The first picture is like a painting it is so pretty. Love the tree and it branches again the backdrop of the clear water and the cloud filled sky..The purple flowers picture is awesome. Love that color. Finally, your last shot is lovely in the way the clouds ae hiding the mountains. genie

Hi there - I like the first tree image a lot.

You will be pleased to hear that the emu is doing OK in Australia - in some parts of the country they may even be considered common - well, common for a bird half the size of a horse that is!

Top image is fabulous Sylvia, so many boats in the harbour, and I like very much the Leo Buscaglia quote.

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.
