Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

There is still no cure for the common birthday.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage
to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Hi Sylvia, The Serenity Prayer is always a favorite of mine. That photo (3rd one) is absolutely breath-taking. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,

Wonderful images Sylvia, is it true, do you have a birthday coming up? The only cure I know for birthdays is to just ignore them, but really you can't, no one will let you and then deep down you're glad really, they can be a lot of fun.

Those flowers are so pretty!

JM said...

What beautiful flowers! I wonder what that plant is. Great shots, Sylvia!

Sylvia K said...

I wondered what the plant was, too, JM! I was out walking around the neighborhood and saw it and had to get a shot, but there was no one around to ask what the name of it is. Thanks as always for stopping by and commenting!!

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.
