Evening Wisdom and Beauty

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
Iris Murdoch

What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn't have any doubt - it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn't want to go anywhere else.
Hal Boyle

The flower quotation is perfect, Sylvia. I had not read it before nor thought about flowers in that way.

A nice entry, but I prefer the first picture and the quote from Aristotle.

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.
