The Lord has given us a new day.
We will take it gracefully as it arrives!
I have not been writing anything on retirement or old age for a long time.
The recent surge in the number of readers reading my post ” Early Retirement= Early Death?” https://retireediary.wordpress.com/2012/04/17/early-retirement-early-death/ urged me to write instead of only posting photos.
For sure, I am stepping into the Autumn of my life. But are we not just the Autumn foliage, colorful and beautiful, before Winter finally arrives?
Here is also a Video passed to me by a friend – ” The Secrets of Old Age” which I found very meaningful and which I would like to share : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgBF3sIPm4c In summary, the secrets of old age are:
< 3 Photos>
The first one was taken in a private property in Okinawa, Japan. I must admit my initial focus was on the red flowers. My attention was subsequently captured by the stone walls which when put together with the plants and flowers seem to make a good picture.
The second photo was taken in a holiday resort in Langkawi, Malaysia. I was impressed by the architecture of the resort building. The slightly sloping stone walls add a lot to the elegance of the building.
The last one was taken in Chongqing, China. The wall was entirely covered by a mural depicting some history in the past. Apart from a door opening on the right hand bottom corner, it is somewhat difficult to understand it is a building.
Please enjoy :-)
I have been blogging for more than 3 years but this is the second time I reblog other writer’s post. The picture is just incredibly beautiful. I must congratulate M C Andrews for this very outstanding picture . . . . . . . . . .

I must admit that I do not know a lot of background about the history / story behind the walls.
Please enjoy :-)
Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics.
This is the book I once studied for Statistics.
But have you heard – Lies, Damn Lies and Photography??
Do you believe all the news shown on the TV?
Why are I saying all these – these three photos taken in the Baltic may be taken to mean that the Baltic are relatively backward countries.
It is my intention to show the more rustic side of Baltic. In fact, what I am trying to say is that the Baltic is an interesting place to go!
