Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.

One joy scatters a hundred griefs.

Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is right at their heels.

The last quote rings true, sometimes we just need to stop and wait, look up and around and we can find all we need.

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.
