That Evening to Crazy Accident 
A couple's special night 
A special night for a double date 

That Evening (Shakespearean sonnet) 

The moon remained as warm as it had been
Through memories of our remember when
To light the night for kisses to begin
And cuddle under stardust now and then
Sweet jasmine is still dancing with the breeze
To guide two lovers with so much to share
Where minds are free to wonder as they please
Assuring sighs the other’s waiting there
A lifetime in a moment was refined
The dreams of lovers clearly in their view
While in each other’s arms they were resigned
Throughout tomorrows they would see it though
There never was an evening quite like this
It was the midnight of that final kiss 

A special night, a special moment is shared by two lovers and this Shakespearean sonnet. At first glance this looks like a regular love sonnet. It doesn't contain a "conflict" stanza. It does have one "all in one" line. See if we can figure it out before the story ends. 

One of Arlene's and my best dances was next to the Carnelian Room. Now closed, the Carnelian room was a restaurant atop of the 52-story 778 ft, formerly Bank of America Center building. They also had several rooms for rent for parties. Arlene and I got two adjacent rooms. At the Lodge there was these lovers, Mary and Andrew West. They were in their golden years. Arlene and I were pretty good, as far as lovers go. But we didn't hold a candle to Mary and Andrew.These two were the lovers we all hope to be when we grow old. They were living proof that love is ageless. It was hard to guess their age. Whenever one was seen alone, we can bet the other one was nearby. When they looked into one another's eyes or danced together one could imagine moments made. Here was love. The Wests came to our dance overlooking San Francisco. The next day Mary was admitted into the hospital. She died two days later. Mary and Andrew had enjoyed their last dance with us. They knew this was their last day together. (Andrew joined Mary within a few weeks. Death can be beautiful.)

All things must come to an end. It is the existence we are born to. We are taught to mourn the loss of a person, a time, a place. This is normal and fitting. I offer one more thought. Knowing that all things end, why not make beautiful, wondrous, special moments now? Go that little extra in each moment. One more kiss. One more look. One more taste. Do not let anything go for granted. Treat all things special. Be special for all things. Create memories. Memories of a person, a time, a place. Memories so special that no sadness can survive the joy of the moments made. Rather than feeling down that it is over, rejoice that it happened at all, and that we made it special. We are special. Through us it will go on. It will go on through those we touch. And on and on. Do all things really end or just change? When the time comes for the sun to greet one more day, we can join it in sadness or Enjoy.

The dating scene 

Here are some fun facts about the dating scene: Most couples are willing to enter an exclusive relationship after six to eight dates. Most common time for breakups is around three to five months. It takes between 12-14 dates before couples will trade house keys. Meet Anwar Jibawi. He is hosting the less common, yet still popular, double bate. 
Let's see how the evening unfolds. "CRAZY ACCIDENT | Anwar Jibawi"

The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for 
you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally 
meet somewhere. They're in each other all along. 



  1. Sooo many people don't think like that. They act as if they will live forever and end up regretting those little extra moments they missed. Things end, the sooner we realize that the happier we'll be.

    1. Exactly right!
      Thank you, Pat
      (for showing that I'm not entirely crazy)

  2. I bet that was some special dance! Oh and I am such a huge fan of Rumi. I wonder if he had a lover.

    1. Just to see them together was always special.
