"The essential is unsayable and the unsayable is the essential". This observation of life expresses the experience as the elevator doors opened at Stella's Restaurant in Minneapolis last night into a semi-darkened room and eighty voices yelled, "Surprise".
Mary and I entered into a room, a night filled with people with whom we hold dear. Each who has contributed to the richness of our life. Each who took the time to say, "Surprise".
More can be written and shall be written about the evening, but at this moment the essentials of last night remain unsayable.
