Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.

In separateness lies the world's true misery. In compassion lies the world's true strength

The Seattle area has quite a variety of shopping centers and not your usual ones, so it's always fun to visit one you haven't been to before and that was the case with this one in nearby Botthell, WA, a small suburb of  Seattle. That's where my favorite tea shop is -- which I have shown you before. But the whole shopping center is like a small country village. Hope you enjoy!
Trust yourself, then you will know how to live.

Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.

Change before you have to.

We look forward to the time when the power of love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.

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.
