There's Always Beauty When You Take Time to Look!!

“The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.”Sarah Ban Breathnach
“Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.”Sarah Ban Breahtnach
Yes, there are all kinds of beauty, everywhere once we learn to look for them instead of focusing on the bad and the ugly so often found on the surface!!

Beautiful waterfalls Sylvia, I await the greenery. All we have is snow and cold.

How is the snow melt coming along, Sylvia? Are you getting the wind and rain now too? Is flooding an issue in the Portland area?

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.
