Our World Tuesday!!

Time to share our world and I do hope you don’t get tired of beautiful, colorful flowers because my world is still overflowing with them!!! The ones I’m sharing with you today are all around the apartment complex where I live, so regardless of the season, there is always some colorful beauty to greet me when I awake in the mornings!!  I do hope all of you have a wonderful new week!! Enjoy and take time to look for the beauty that is in all our worlds!!

A flower's appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect. ~Terri Guillemets

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch, A Fairly Honourable Defeat
Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful. ~Jim Carrey

I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck. ~Emma Goldman

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.
