Our World

In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous.
       - Aristotle
Time to share Our World!! Spring is definitely on the way – even when the skies are gray and rainy! It’s the gray and gloomy that brings the color and the beauty of nature everywhere!! And here is some of ours in the northwest!!  I hope all of you have a wonderful new week!! Smile, laugh and enjoy!!

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
      - Confucius

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet.
       - James Oppenheim

How beautiful - blue skies and sunny waters. Your comments came out fine, thank you, I just have to approve them. I think blogger may have a little issue as it doesn't indicate they're posting on some blogs. Anyway, have a wonderful week!

So beautiful Sylvia -- and that last quote describes you! (And I am striving for it). Thank you so much for your always beautiful posts and as always for hosting both memes.

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.
