We had a lovely, sunny day on Sunday and how welcome it was after a week of gray skies, heavy fog and bone chilling cold!! And I found myself thinking about spring and all the beautiful colors that we see here. So, today I'm sharing some of the colors of our springs from past years! Hope you enjoy!

An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.
Mohandas Gandhi

You cannot find peace by avoiding life.
Virginia Woolf

Don't gain the world  and lose your soul, wisdom Is better than silver or gold.
Bob Marley

Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.
Mohandas Gandhi
You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.
Eckhart Tolle

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.
