One Quiet Moment

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

That is a wise statement, Sylvia. Sometimes we need to smile when we don't really feel like smiling, but the act of smiling and the responses we receive end up making us feel like smiling after all.

I know this particular place is one of your favorites...and this special sunset is glorious and I like the quote a lot as it does make sense to me.

My problem is that when I smile people don't seem to know it. If someone takes my picture and says, "Will you smile?" I get confused 'cause I think I am smiling. :) Then I don't smile; I scowl. Grr.

Just kidding!

This is a spectacular photo, Sylvia - one of my favorites from you. And smiling is worthwhile in either case. Have a wonderful week!

Which reminds me to fake it until I make it on the gloomy days. Beautiful photo!

WOW! Magnificent, Sylvia!

Sorry I've not been commenting lately but a tendinitis (shoulder + elbow) is forcing me to stay away from the keyboard as much as possible - repeated movements of the arm is all I have to avoid...

A beautiful sunset Sylvia. It made me smile inside.

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.
