It's Valentine's Day!
This piece, "With You There Is No End," is, of course, for my wife Susan.
I met Susan when I was performing a concert in Virginia Beach and she was moonlighting as a theater tech at the hall. I was struck by her beauty and charm right from the very start.
Yep, love at first sight.
She, however, was not so enthralled.
"Would you have dinner with me?" I asked expecting her to answer yes.
"No," she answered continuing to push the piano onto the stage - using a lot of concentration to position the piano just so.
"No?" I was really disappointed.
"No." She continued to work the piano into place.
"Drink after the concert?"
"Can I wave to you from the stage?"
"Wow, ... that's a bit ... negative. Married?"
"Thinking about being in a relationship?"
"I'm too tall?"
"You don't like classical music?"
" ... then ... why?"
She thought for a moment and then looked at me.
"My Momma warned me about men like you."
It took almost eighteen months to get her to agree to even go out on a date with me.
I proposed that very first night.
Of course, she said "No."
Eventually I just wore her down.
If you have but a small percentage of the happiness I have found with my partner then you would be a very happy person.
Happy Valentine's Day.
