One Quiet Moment

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

My Autumn Weekend

October's poplars are flaming torches lighting the way to winter."
-   Nova Bair
When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
Welcome wool sweaters."
-   B. Cybrill 
Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

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.
