Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty.
And  how about my upside down duck friend!!
Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

Dear Sylvia, Just a note to tell you how sad to learn of your dear Sam's passing. The story of the attack is awful! Please know my heartfelt thoughts and prayers as your heart heals.

Kindly, Lorraine

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.
