Weekend Reflections!!

Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
-- Margaret Mead

Beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You don't want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head.
-- Garrison Keillor

Reflections on the River!! It was a fun evening with good friends on the Willamette River, and, of course, a camera!!

Our World!!

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
      - Confucius
Today I'm looking back over the summer and a beautiful summer it has been for me and for my family! Hope you enjoy these -- I know most of you have seen them before, but perhaps a second look can still be enjoyed. Wishing you a beautiful new week!! Enjoy!!
You can't expect people to look eye to eye with you if you are looking down on them.

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.
