Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Change brings opportunity.
Nido Qubein


Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.
Mahatma Gandhi

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

These are great! And I have stolen your Gandhi quote because I think it needs all the exposure we can give it.

Sylvia, Wonderful captures.

Well, this post contains a wonderful series of images. I'm not sure it's fair that you can just hop out of bed and find all these beauty at your doorstep! :-)

I especially like that first shot and have found that the quote is quite accurate. The problem is that change kills me so I can't take advantage of the opportunity. Or maybe I'm just getting old.

I am kidding you, though...

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.
