Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.  Thich Nhat Hanh

Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.    Henri Nouwen

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.   Abraham Lincoln

sweet water reflections!

Taken For Granted said...

You have three fine photographs with reflections. Love the sunset. But there is something distinctly odd about the sailboat photo. The boat is clearly underway, but there is no one at the tiller, the sails are not properly set, and the motor is likely running. That's hazardous sailing close to shore. Your picture raises many questions.

That first shot is truly spectacular! And I'd have to say that today I'm about as happy as a duck in water or a turtle on a log!

Sylvia, the first photo of this series, is a true wonder, what colors ... awesome.
Greetings. -

Wish I could be on that boat, no make that on those boats!

Your first image brings me peace just looking at it, and Hanh must be or was one smart dude! I just googled him; he's 86 and is a monk.
Now I'm worried about the sailboat because of Taken for Granted's comment. Knowing nothing about sailing, I saw only a serene spot to sail.
I'd like to be enjoying in person the ducks and turtles' ride on the log.
have a wonderful weekend!

I love these photos - the colors in that first one are stunning. Have a great weekend, and I'm sure Sam would love a treat. Socks will be bored as it's going to be cold and snowy here...

Beauty shot of the month, that first one! That's the stuff of paintings and poetry.

As a sailor, I'm with TFG re that last one. Oh I can feel a mystery muse a-stirring...

Abraham Lincoln obviously was a wise man :-)

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.
