Oh Sylvia, these are just grand! The willow silhouette against the sunset is stunning! Hope you have a terrific week.

That last quote certainly does put things in perspective. I like how the bare tree branches drape down over the sunset in the second to last photo in this series. :)

The foliage is beautiful, Sylvia. And I always love the quotes you choose.

When I clicked on the thumbnail at OurWorld it took me to a place that said you do not exist. Well, I KNOW you do! But others may not be able to find you.

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.
