Shadow Shot Sunday!!!

Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.
John F. Kennedy
World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just the absence of violence but the manifestation of human compassion.
Dalai Lama

Welcome to the magical world of Shadow Shot Sunday!

Weekend Reflections

My daughter was enjoying a visit to a park in California and saw this swan. She took the photo and sent it to me, knowing how I love swans! It looked so peaceful and lovely and I wanted to share it with you today! Hope all of you have a great weekend!!

Our World!

Autumn is the perfect time to take account of what we've done, what we didn't do, and what we'd like to do next year. ~Author Unknown
Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits. ~Samuel Butler
And Happy Halloween!!!
...I see
the turning of a leaf
dancing in an autumn sun,
and brilliant shades of crimson
glowing when a day is done...
~Hazelmarie "Mattie" Elliott

Time for Our World again!! This is a wonderful way to find, see and enjoy the beauty, the fun, the good and even the not so good things about our world today and to share them!! Hope you will join us!!

One Quiet Moment

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.
William Ewart Gladstone


Happy Sunday!! It's a Beautiful World!!

Contentment is born of the capacity
to love impartially
to listen uncritically
to give unconditionally
to forgive unreservedly
to laugh at oneself unaffectedly.
Always look for the beauty, it's always there.
Have a beautiful day!

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.
