Evening Wisdom and Beauty!

A sure way to lose happiness, I found, is to want it at the expense of everything else.
Bette Davis
Always leave something to wish for; otherwise you will be miserable from your very happiness.
Baltazar Gracian

An effort made for the happiness of others lifts above ourselves.

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.
