I'm a retired librarian who loves to read all of the time. I've been married for 41 years and have four precious sons who live all over the world. We have a dog named Ms. Wilma and a dog named Bam Bam and a beautiful gray cat named Spike. My grand-dogs are Huey P. Long and Callie. I like to paint, play the piano, sew, and read British Mysteries. I believe in promoting literacy and love to watch a child learn to read. View my complete profile
There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
But when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.
Go, dear friend, if need be give up all else, and commence today to inure yourself to pluck, reality, self-esteem, definiteness, elevatedness,
Rest not till you rivet and publish yourself of your own Personality.

Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.
~~ Lao Tzu ~~
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers". ~Charles W. Eliot
