One Quiet Moment

People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.  ~Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross

One Quiet Moment

...So let us welcome peaceful evening in. ~William Cowper

Beautiful Spring and Some Humor for the Weekend

By the time you're eighty years old you've learned everything. You only have to remember it.
-- George Burns
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
-- Margaret Mead
Beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You don't want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head.
-- Garrison Keillor
Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.
-- Mark Twain
Consider the postage stamp, my son. It secures success through its ability to stick to one thing till it gets there.
-- Josh Billings


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.
