Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower. - Hans Christian Anderson

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. -Elwyn Brooks White

If you search the world for happiness you may find it in the end, for the world is round and will lead you back to your door. -Robert Brandt

Love the quotes as always but that funny one by Elwyn Brooks (someone I am not at all familiar with) really strikes a chord with me today. I think I'll choose enjoy!

A version of that tree grows here in Florida later in the Spring; I will try to post a picture of it and let you know when I do.

You have come across some great trees...this reminds me of one that grows in Florida but ours is not as big or pretty.

Wishing you a great Sunday!

That tree reminds me of our royal poinciana.

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.
