Our World!!

In my garden, after a rainfall, you can faintly, yes, hear the
      breaking of new blooms.                                                             
                                                          - Truman Capote
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under
    trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water,
    or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means
    a waste of time.  
                                                                                     - J. Lubbuck
Join us and celebrate the beauty of our world -- regardless of the season!!  Yes, I know, I obviously prefer Spring!!!

Thank you for your colourful spring photo, Sylvia!
Have a great week!

James said...

The flowers are beautiful! It's nice to be reminded that they still exist. The trees and bushes are bare and the ground is covered with snow here.

Have a great day Sylvia!

Oh what I would do for a blade of grass to lie on ... you got it right, Sylvia, it just isn't always possible to do it the way you would like to. My rest on a day like today is cuddled up in a nice warm fleece throw with a good book ... and that isn't a waste of time either :)Stay warm, Sylvia ...

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.
