Enjoy the Beauty Around You -- Every Day!!

I've learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.

I guess it all depends on our own attitude.

So true. We are responsible for our own happiness.

What a beautiful photo, Sylvia. And the quote from Mrs. Washington: I thought she made stuff out of cloth and didn't know she sat around thinking profound thoughts! :)

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.
