Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!!

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
    Henry David Thoreau

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
                    Lao Tzu

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains
     of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and
     spring after the winter.
           Rachel Carson

OK you and Henry David have just provided the nudge I need to get started again on my morning walk routine -- I've really let it slip this summer.

Beautiful pictures!!!

I love my early morning walks so I agree wholeheartedly with Thoreau! Beautiful photos, Sylvia!

Beautiful photos, Sylvia... I don't usually get up early--but when I do, I love it... The Thoreau quote is SUPER.

Love your sunset photos! Haven't heard the name Rachel Carson recently, but I remember when her book came out...certain people became very angry with her that she dared question our treatment of the environment. I guess we had crazies then, too. But not as bad as now, I don't think.

I always love your sky shots. It made me feel closer to USA where my mom lives because I feel like we are looking at the same sky.

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.
