Shadow Shot Sunday!

Shadow Shot Sunday #2 - Magical Mystical Teacher + Chubskulit + Gemma Wiseman

I've been waiting to get a new battery for my camera and waiting for some sunshine, so it's been back to the files. I had to laugh when I found the second shot -- it's about the busiest shadow shot I've ever seen and I don't know how got so many in only one shot! Not the best quality, but fun!  Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy!

Beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You don't
want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head.

Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

The summer night is like a perfection of thought.  Wallace Stevens

Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.  Sam Keen

Inner Peace:

 This is so true

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every  day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol, 
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,


...Then You Are Probably
The Family Dog!

And you thought I was going to get all spiritual....

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.
