Down the mountainside a gentle breeze blows
Through the mighty maples and oaks so fair.
Past the gold meadows where the river flows
Nightingale crooning, love is in the air.
I found you sitting on the rocks alone
As day faded into velvet twilight.
Lost in this world, no one to call your own
While distant stars illuminate the night.
Look into my eyes, I can read your mind.
Hold my hands, feel the energy within.
A power to bring eyesight to the blind,
And I promise you’ll see the sun again.
Draw the curtains, let my love lift you higher
Surrender to this passion and desire.

Hello! We drove up to Michigan yesterday for a long weekend visiting my husband’s family. Today it has been raining all day, but we got to go into Rochester for an hour of downtown shopping, and then spent the afternoon with Dan’s older brother Steve, wife Vicky, Brother Jon and his wife Connie. We had dinner at Victoria’s in Oxford this evening. Steve is doing so much better, he’s had a host of health issues for about the last 8 months. Fortunately, he is getting stronger and gaining back his mobility. Tomorrow we are getting together with all the Michigan cousins for dinner.
It has been nice to get out of town for a long weekend after a challenging tax season! It has been difficult switching gears from working many hours of overtime to virtually none. I’m sure I will find other things to do. Our firm is starting their annual fitness challenge on May 1, so I better break out my running shoes again!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. 😊
