One Quiet Moment

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.
--John Steinbeck

I agree with Steinbeck - but winter is about my favorite time of the year - but when it gets long, I long for summer.

"Cold" is a relative term. I think it's freezing cold here this morning at 52 degrees. I prefer summer warmth and having lived in the south for many years, I need not the winter to appreciate the warmth. So, Steinbeck is full of it, methinks. Heh, heh! Wishing you a wonderful week!

Right now the cold of winter sounds so very appealing :) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and new grandchild Sylvia.. it was pretty fantastic to have my sweet wee granddaughter staying with us, even though she did wake up at the crack of dawn every day and want to play :) Here's wishing you all the very best for the new year xox

First let me say that I cannot believe that I am 76 years old and have never read Steinbeck. I probably should keep that one a secret, but I’ve never been a secret keeper.And now to your photograph. How peaceful and serene. The coloration is heavenly. Your part of the world is “out of this world” in my book.

I could debate that one, Sylvia.

Great photo but I'm going to disagree with Steinbeck's quote. I don't like being cold!! I like being warm.

Take care Sylvia!

This quote and the ones in the post above are just great and almost make me wish for snow. Almost!

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.
