Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!!

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
Rabindranath Tagore

The first recipe for happiness is: Avoid too lengthy meditation on the past.
Andre Maurois

To love beauty is to see light.

Sylvia, your skies, and particularly that last evening shot, are mesmerizing. The wispy branches look like fine lace.

Gorgeous skies and quotes, Sylvia. It hasn't gotten cold here yet, we're still waiting for any real bad weather - my photo was from years ago! How does Sam handle the Seattle winter? Socks doesn't mind it until it gets below about 10 degrees, then he would rather stay inside because his feet can't stay down too long. (Pomeranians are originally descended from Scandinavian sled dogs!)

Wow---great quotes today.. I like them all... The one which stuck with me today was the one about not dwelling on the past... YEAH!!!!

Avoid too lengthy meditation on the past. what does this mean, dwelling on it?

Sérgio Pontes said...

Your photos are very nice

Some good stuff here, Sylvia! Hugo was right about light and that's the essence of photography! As to meditating on the past, well, I try to avoid too much of it but then some of it was quite wonderful and so meditation on the past can bring back wonderful memories. Fortunately, I can block out lots of bad memories! :-)

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.
