Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

You can fall in love at first sight with a place as with a person. ~Alec Waugh

They turned the country up on its side, and everything loose fell into California. ~Author Unknown

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. ~Lin Yutang

Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.
~Mark Twain

We must be our own before we can be anothers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

You grow up the day you have your first real laugh, at yourself. ~Ethel Barrymore

Take the time to come home to yourself every day. ~Robin Casarjean

I love Mark Twains quote. How true is that do you suppose :) Love the photos. That 4th one of the water is wonderful. It looks so clean and refreshing :)

I just read about Adam. I'm so glad he is feeling better but I will say a prayer tonight for his continued recovery.

The Alec Waugh quote is my favorite of all (until your next post anyway ;>). We have found what he says to be so true as we travel. Thank you -- as always --

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.
