Evening, Wisdom and Beauty!!

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.
Anton Chekhov

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was within me an invincible summer.
Albert Camus

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
Anne Bradstreet

I'm enjoying the quotes.
Right now I'm reading a book and the name Anne Bradstreet has been mentioned as the sister of one of the characters. I don't know whether she herself will appear.

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.
