Life at an Intersection

Chicago Phoenix, indemnity bonds, journaling, really really really want a zigazig ah, travel, books, travel books, relationships, values. It is hard to pinpoint precisely, but I'd say about 82% of what you read here is true. The rest is fictional nonfiction.

Saugatuck, Memorial Day Weekend

Kevin and I took a little trip across Lake Michigan last weekend for the long holiday. We stayed in one of those picturesque little waterfront villages where affluent bed-and-breakfast 50somethings just love to untuck their shirts. It was great.

We took a room at the Shangrai-La Hotel where our hosts, the Patels, had done just a bang-up job on the shower tile. I took pictures because I hope to replicate it one day in a home of my own.

We hung out on the village green's grass, listened to some gazebo bar band play Jimmy Buffet, and congratulated ourselves on 3 years minus 10 days of togetherness.

We spent a day at Lake Michigan's nicest beach. That's not as easy a title to win as you might think, smartasses. It was too windy to take off your shirt and tan, but perfect kite flying weather. My towel was red, white, and blue to honor our nation's war dead.

A sunset.

A very nice getaway.

Words That I'm Living By - 5/2/2010

Time, as I've known it
Doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months
Turn into years, they hurry by me
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now
Hopes that I've forgotten,
faded memories
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

And I love to see the morning
as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and
I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around
so I can be there when I die
When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thought will comfort you
On cold and cloudy days
if you are crying
And that you'll love to see
the sun go down
And the world go around
And around and around
