I can not seem to get him out of my mind. It has been weeks since that night at the opera. Was it my imagination or just a strange sensation that someone was watching me from behind in the window box section I was sitting. Per chance if I had only turned around, I would have known, but the feeling I had would not allow it. Then during intermission I caught a glimpse of a lovely man walking through the crowd approaching me, so I thought. So dignified, so tall, dark and handsome with an enduring quality about him. I took note quickly. Somehow the whole of my being wanted to reach out to him. Was I meant to meet this man? He never saw me in the crowd. I was so awestruck by the strangeness of it all. I did not return to the box for the second act after intermission. As fate would have it, could we have been as "ships passing in the night"? I still cannot forget!

My neighborhood is one of the oldest and most beautiful in the city. We are fanatic about decorating for the seasons. Down the street lives a lovely lady who is an artist by profession. She lies claim to the most wonderfully decorated tree in a yard. She has a crew to work deligentally to create this masterpiece of lights. We wait to enjoy it every year.

Down the street from me there is a home with a great sculpture in the front yard. Texas is known for furious thunderstorms. A couple of years ago we had one and lightning struck a beautiful 80 year old huge Oak tree in this neighbor's yard. It split the tree in half. They did not want to remove the trunk so they had a chainsaw sculptor create two dogs on top of the trunk from the wood. One dog is an English Whippet which represents the aristocratic dog and the other is a Terrier which represents the everyman's dog. They sit up looking so regal and proper together. What a wonderful tribute to remember a wonderful old tree.
