Our World

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
 Albert Einstein

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.  Elizabeth
Lawrence

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.
 Nathaniel Hawthorne

I love that quote by Einstein and have it on my blog as well. It is not always easy to see the magic though … unless visiting places that have wonderful pathways and a waterfall.

Autumn is so beautiful and walking through park with you, was special for me. We're in SA now and spring has sprung although it's very dry still. Hope you're having a great day. Greetings. Jo

Beautiful photos and quotes as it just starts to feel like fall. And thank you for your concern, but we were not directly impacted by the floods. A foot of rain both north and south of us but we only had a few inches.

Beautiful waterfalls!

Lovely images and wonderful quotes

Reader Wil said...

I agree with you : these pictures show a fabulous world!
Yesteday started with sunshine and therefore I lowered the sunshade, which was not a good idea for a couple of minutes later it started to rain. So I left the shade all night down to dry.Hopefully today it remains dry.
Thanks for your visit. Have a great autumn day!
Wil, ABCW Team.

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.
