The fabulous and outrageous Minton’s returned this evening from the greater Minton Family Reunion at Beachwalk Resort in gorgeous, sunny and sandy Michigan City, Indiana.

A fun little project with what I think is an appropriate song giving friendly accompaniment!

I remembered it: broken- still a vessel once
upon a time now lain down in its own
stillness to rest; to dust.
Just off of Gratiot Lake
Road and finding
A road that cannot
Contain its playful winding
And leads to the home

Land in this fine country. Continue reading
I was a fool when I visited last
This place, this mountain sandy avenue

On the edge of a wood, on a clear
Crisp day, in my mind- we walked; your hand
In mine. Your smile was the mirror
Of female loveliness. But the land
Was lovely too and when I mentioned

That so, in my eyes all attentioned:
You were the lovlier of the two.
Looking up through the
darkness of night; past distance,
into time and space.
