    Serenity - Peace - Tranquility

    Tranquility of nature is good for the wellbeing of your mind ...
    Allowing yourself to listen the sounds and silence of nature you can increase the positive effects of nature on you.
    People often say that it is silent (we mean totally silent) in nature. If you really are in nature there aren`t many sounds. However seldom there is a total silence in nature;

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WELCOME TO 2018!

Many of our snowbird friends will be returning this month and our fun-filled activities continue. We begin the New Year with a pancake breakfast on Tuesday, January 9. Next is our first Pot Luck of the season on Thursday, January 11 followed by Vespers on Sunday, January 14. There is a Whist Party on Thursday, January 18 and have your sweet tooth ready for the Ice Cream Social on Thursday, January 25.

January 1Our regular activities are continuing with a coffee meeting every Tuesday where you can meet new neighbors and catch up on the Orange Acres news. We also have billiards, regular exercise and water exercise, mixed golf, shuffleboard, bridge and mixed cards, computer technology class, sequence and Bingo.

I was reminded of a line from the wonderful book "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll and thought it was an excellent idea as we begin our new year. When the White Rabbit asked the King of Hearts how to get started, the King said, "Begin at the beginning.  Go until you reach the end. Then stop."

Remember that LIFE is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.

Enjoy the New Year ~
