Ah! One of Those Sunny Days at the Beach!!

Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart. Sarah Ban Breathnach
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child. Marie Curie
Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.

I sometimes try to think of quotes to help clarify what I want to say.

I should just visit your site at those times.

Margaret B. Runbeck's is a gem.

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.
