One Quiet Moment

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storms, but to add color to my sunset sky.  Rabindranath Tagore

Happy Wednesday!!

Be like the bird, who halting in his flight on limb too slight,
         feels it give way beneath him, yet sings knowing he
         hath wings.

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.
