We Met,

looking back into our own history

looking at the self portrait in the hotel mirror, done by my wife,
I remembered the lyrics of Paul Simon about Rene and Georgette Magritte,

Returned to their hotel suite
And they unlocked the door
Easily losing their evening clothes
They dance by the light of the moon…”
